International Cultural Exchange Services
ICES is an international nonprofit student academic and 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 student academic and exchange programs for international and American students. We’ve been loving what we do since 1991, when the company was founded, and we are amazed by the remarkable achievements of our international and American exchange students.
Young people participate in student exchange programs for various reasons. They want to experience another culture, become more mature, meet international friends and improve their language abilities. American families participate with the desire to share their homes and lifestyles, broaden their knowledge of other cultures and encourage better world relations. Local schools are eager to participate in youth exchange for the many benefits their students receive by interacting with other students from around the world. ICES is committed to helping students, families and schools reach these goals.
Sign up today for one of our student programs, become a host family, explore our new internship and trainee program, or work with us to help promote a range of rewarding inter-cultural experiences! Your adventure begins here!
