Exchange Year 101 / Life in the U.S.

The End is Full of New Beginnings!

As the end of the school year draws near, so begins the period of transition when our wonderful exchange students prepare to return to their home country. While it can be difficult both for our students and their gracious host families, it is good to focus on all the growth, discovery, and newfound love that cultural exchange has brought to many throughout the year!

The End of Year Orientation is a chance for our local coordinators, students, and host families to gather and reflect on the year they shared together in America. Below are a few words and photos from this special time of year:
