Forte International is a top notch student exchange program! What makes Forte unique from other exchange organizations? They take the time to LISTEN! Forte staff go out of their way to support their host families and exchange students throughout the exchange. They provide monthly contact with the students, schools and families. The local reps organize events for their students as well as have orientations to prepare both the students and host family for their amazing experience. Any concerns are addressed promptly and are well handled through a team of support staff who are available to you for any questions you may have. Their students are AWESOME kids ~ I highly recommend you to contact Forte today if you are considering hosting!
