To build lifelong relationships between Americans and foreign exchange students so that we create greater mutual understanding and compassion in the world.

STS Foundation is a program that enables people to come together with mutual respect, promoting personal growth and a positive global perspective which can break down cultural barriers, and increase respect and understanding of each other’s way of life.

At STS Foundation, our Host families, American High Schools, and Community Leaders have an incredible impact on a high school exchange student’s life and that of the American families within their community.

STS Foundation is committed to educating tomorrow’s future leaders, creating lifelong friendships, and developing strong international relationships.
