Mission Statement

ICES is a nonprofit organization dedicated to promoting a peaceful world by increasing international awareness and understanding through cultural sharing experiences. As the global community we live in becomes increasingly interdependent and subject to change, today's young people will face numerous challenges on the journey to becoming tomorrow's leaders. We believe the foreign student exchange experience helps young people of all nationalities embrace those challenges and discover new opportunities that will help them dream and achieve more than they ever thought possible.


Founded in 1991, ICES is a nonprofit organization dedicated to increasing awareness and understanding among the peoples of the world. ICES has accomplished this goal for thousands of exchange student participants for nearly 15 years through its dedicated volunteers and international partners.

Since its beginning, ICES has been recognized as a quality midsized student exchange program. ICES has established a successful history managing student exchange operations. We are acknowledged as providing superior exchange programs and personalized service. Our success is based on delivering more than expected and using all of our resources to ensure optimum satisfaction. Our goal is not necessarily to increase in size, but to specialize and personalize our services without lowering our quality standards.

ICES cooperates with Student Exchange Organizations all over the world. These ICES Associated Organizations and Agencies can be found from Asia, Australia, Africa and Europe to Central and South America.
