Mission Statement

SHARE! strongly believes that cross-cultural exchange is fundamental to creating understanding and tolerance in a world that grows smaller every day. We truly believe the future of our children rests on developing friendships with people from other countries.

Description

Since 1974, the SHARE! High School Exchange Program sponsors approximately 750 high school exchange students to experience l ife in the United States by living with Host Families and attending local public high schools for a semester or academic year.

SHARE! maintains a network of dedicated and knowledgeable Exchange Program Coordinators (EPCs) who work in local communities throughout the United States. We believe that the EPC is the key person in providing a quality experience for everyone involved in the exchange experience. EPCs interview and select qualified host families, provide orientations for host families and students, regularly monitor student progress, resolve conflicts, plan group gatherings, and provide continuing support for host families, students, and high schools.
