Mission Statement


ICES is a nonprofit organization dedicated to promoting a peaceful world by increasing international awareness and understanding through cultural sharing experiences. As the global community we live in becomes increasingly interdependent and subject to change, today's young people will face numerous challenges on the journey to becoming tomorrow's leaders. We believe the foreign student exchange experience helps young people of all nationalities embrace those challenges and discover new opportunities that will help them dream and achieve more than they ever thought possible.

Description


ICES offers young people the adventure of a lifetime - the opportunity to discover themselves by discovering others. Through the process of learning new languages and exploring other countries and cultures, ICES students develop a lifelong love of learning and the skills and knowledge necessary to thrive in and contribute to a society marked by increased diversity. The Host Families and local Area Representatives who facilitate the exchange experience benefit as well. By gaining a new son or daughter, Host Families participate in the evolving process of promoting peace through mutual respect and understanding. Area Representatives become community leaders and local ambassadors by promoting international awareness and expanding the perspectives of those around them.
