How to support students during and after COVID-19

Thanks to the help of our amazing field staff & host families

Our students are able to adjust through these hard times by learning to do their school online, following social distancing rules & becoming closer with their host family.

Looking Ahead

The COVID-19 pandemic has disrupted intercultural learning for more than half of our international students. We are doing our best to navigate through these uncertain times. Our students and host families are our top priority and we are following along closely with the recommendations issued by CDC, USDOS, federal, state, and local guidelines.

This pandemic continues to create new challenges for students, schools, communities, and our organization. We are committed to upholding our promise to promote international goodwill and cultural exchange during and after COVID-19. We are moving ahead with planning the future of our students in August 2020.
