Would you recommend CIEE: Council on International Educational Exchange?

by Karen H. (June 23, 2009)
We were privileged to host a student from Germany for the 2008-90 school year. While we were anxious and uncertain as to how he would fit in, the experience far exceeded our best expectations. Steve integrated into our family and enthusiastically participated in every aspect of our lives. We learned so much from each other and gained a broader perspective on the world outside the US. We ended the year sadly, as we hated to see him leave, but look forward to visiting him and his family next summer.

My family and I are very excited to host an exchange student with CIEE this fall! CIEE has been around for a long time and is one of the most reputable exchange organizations in the world. They focus on the true meaning of international exchange, sharing cultures and ideas to bring about understanding throughout the world. They are diligent about the safety of host families and exchange students, they strictly follow the State Department guidelines. Local Coordinators keep in constant communication with their families and students and have a wealth of knowledge and experience to share. I would highly recommend hosting an exchange student with CIEE!
