Mission Statement

Cultural Homestay International (CHI) is a non-profit public benefit organization founded in 1980 to promote international understanding, friendship, and goodwill through cultural homestays. We believe that the best way to eliminate fear and prejudice among nations is to experience directly the cultures, languages, and customs of the peoples by living with them. The CHI program focuses primarily on the education of the participating student, the volunteer host family, and the local community through communication and interaction in the home, the classroom, the host business and the neighborhood. It is our hope that a more informed citizenry will ultimately contribute to a more prosperous, democratic, and peaceful world.

Description

We are a student exchange organization which brings students from other countries here to have either short term experiences or for a semester or school year. We also send American students to other countries for the same time periods. We also work with adult persons with our groups going abroad as well as work and travel programs for young adults.
