About Me



International Exchange Programs


Since I hosted my first exchange student in 1999, I have been amazed by the new world of opportunities that have opened to me and my family. International exchange programs are the best way I know to build peace one person, one family and one community at a time.  The following is a list of exchange program resources that I believe are the best. Let me know if there's a site you think I should add.
