Participating school testimonials

It is our mission to work together with high schools to provide a positive experience for both the student and the school staff. Our Local Coordinators foster personal relationships with every school partner to best present their mission and honor the qualities that make each institution special.

"My name is Laneece Yarbough-Anderson and I am the Teen Leadership teacher at North Crowley HS in Fort Worth, TX. For the past 3 years, I have had the privilege of having exchange students in my class. I believe that the partnership between my class and the exchange students is a great first experience for the students.

In Teen Leadership, we work on building relationships within the class and it is a great opportunity for the exchange students to make forever friends and have a constant group of students that they know they can depend on at school.

I love the idea of the exchange program for students because it gives them an opportunity to travel and explore the world, learn about cultures that they have only maybe read about, and they are able to make lifelong friends. It also gives the exchange students an opportunity to share about their life and culture with my students."
