International youth exchange has introduced me to a country in a way no holiday or gap year ever could. I didn't just visit France, I lived in France. An exchange offers more than several months of a new culture, language and country; it gives you a lifetime of opportunities.

An exchange is an experience never to be forgotten. It shaped part of my character and changed my view on life. I had the best time of my life in Canada.

Just came back from a month with my host family in Cape Town. I had the best time ever! I am so looking forward to having my host brother stay over with me in a couple of months. Thanks for everything!
Best Time Ever! - Tim, 17 years, from Berlin
It was a great learning experience for the entire family. Hosting Paul gave us a look into another culture. It opened our kids’ eyes as to how different thing are here in America. We now have ‘family’ in Holland and we can’t wait to visit them.
Great learning experience - Diane, 43 yrs. host family, from Baltimore
This was the best experience of my life! I lived with a loving host family who truly involved me in local Barcelona life. They allowed me to experience the culture & language more fully than any other way of travelling would have offered me.
