International Experience (iE-USA) is a 501(c)(3) non-profit educational exchange organization that was founded in 2002. iE-USA is designated by U.S. Department of State (DoS) as a J-1 program sponsoring organization and is a fully listed member and accredited by the Council on Standards for International Educational Travel (CSIET) for its J-1 and F-1 programs . IE-USA places high school students from around the world in carefully vetted host families while attending local private or public high schools for a semester or full academic year.
iE provides a personalized, relationship-focused platform in which international students, their host families, and their host communities connect, relate, and explore both the differences that define us as well as the similarities that unite us. This organization provides opportunities for meaningful cultural exchange, helping to create a world where cultural diversity is valued and celebrated and everyone involved can learn, share, and grown through diplomacy and cultural education.
This organization provides education, support and guidance that enables cultural experiences built upon real relationships while promoting understanding, cooperation, and growth between students, their host families, and their host communities.
Hosting an exchange student is a great way for homeschooling families to bring the global education to their home: language, food, traditions, etc. are brought to life through interactions with exchange students.
