Share Your World and Open Theirs. Host Today.
"We are showing that people from different cultures can understand one another"

Ayusa is a high school exchange program sponsored by the Department of State. We match bright young leaders from around the world with families across the United States. Ayusa provides international students the opportunity to learn about America through a semester or year as a high school student in their host family’s community. American host families also experience a new culture and gain a lifelong connection between their family and a family in another country.
