Worldwide Exchange Student Services

Students traveling abroad can depend on the guidance of an experienced International Fellowship Foreign Representative, a national familiar with the country's laws and customs. Foreign Representatives carefully screen Host Homes/Families, provide placement and orientation services, and support the Student throughout his/her stay.

In the United States, Area Directors perform similar services to help the Student derive the maximum benefit from the exchange experience.

At International Fellowship headquarters, a network of qualified Staff are available to assist with all aspects of the Exchange Student Program.
