Programs: 1. Volunteer activities- provides opportunities for people to gain the knowledge, practice the skill, and acquire the attitudes to live productively and harmoniously in a multicultural global society. Numerous affiliated community-based volunteer organizations engage in fund raising, sponsor students going abroad and support students from foreign countries and the families which host them. 2. Hosting programs- provides programs whereby students from other countries can live with a host family in the United States. These students utilize the same program offerings made available to U.S. students going abroad. In addition to the experiences related to attending an American school, the foreign student is also provided the opportunities which further expand his or her knowledge through orientations and visits to local and national historical sites. 3. Sending activities - provides programs whereby American young people can live in a foreign country with a host family. These program offerings include school year programs, school semester programs or summer programs which assist the participant in expanding his or her understanding of and experience in areas of personal interest.
