International Cultural Exchange Services

ICES is an international nonprofit student exchange organization dedicated to promoting a peaceful world by increasing international awareness and cultural understanding. We are a team of experienced professionals who are passionate about offering quality and affordable exchange opportunities for international and American student. We’ve been loving what we do for over 25 years and we are amazed by the remarkable achievements of our students.

Young people participate in student exchange programs for various reasons. They want to experience another culture, become more mature, meet American friends and improve their English ability. American families participate with the desire to share their homes and lifestyles, broaden their knowledge of other cultures and encourage better world relations. ICES is committed to helping students and families reach these goals.
