Northwest Services Peace Program is a student exchange program dedicated to bringing the youth of different nations and cultures together at a personal family level, forging bonds of friendship that will last a lifetime. NW Services was founded with the belief that increasing cultural understanding and tolerance between the nations of the world is the first step to reaching a true peace within the world.
NW Services student exchange programs focus on cultural exchanges for foreign exchange students of high school age in order to further cultural understanding. NW Services student exchange programs concentrates on high school exchange students who will actually become a part of a community in the United States by living as a member of their host family: Eating meals, conversing, playing, and studying. In short, these foreign exchange students are immersed in a new way of life; joining into the culture and community of their host family.
