Mission Statement

World Exchange's mission is to create world peace by providing opportunities for people of different genders, races, religions, ethnicities, and nationalities to learn to think critically and creatively, to employ emotional wisdom, and to foster positive change in their communities and communities around the world.

Description

World Exchange's international student exchange program brings high school students from around the world to participate in short-term homestays with North American host families.

World Exchange operates the New World Project, an innovative media and web-based world peace initiative where students from groups in conflict attend workshops introducing the critical thinking techniques of the Thinkers' Way and the creative mindsets of the Art of Possibility. This branches out in two ways: first, the students return to their communities to apply what they have learned through community projects; and second, worldwide television audiences undergo personal transformations as they follow the students' own transformative journeys.

World Exchange seeks to open people's minds and hearts and to promote

  • respect and tolerance of all people
  • the acquisition of critical and creative thinking skills
  • the importance of deep listening and conversation
  • the revealing and educational nature of questions
  • the recognition of and the practice of fairness, integrity and honesty
  • the knowledge of love and friendship
  • forgiveness and harmony
  • reflection before reaction
  • the awareness that we are all interdependent citizens of the same world
  • the celebration of the beauty and the joy of all life
