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.
“They are both fantastic in their own way!” shares host mom about her two students
“ it's astonishing how it has already made a place for itself in my heart.”
Spend some quality time with your student or host family while getting to know your town
“…we are beginning and carving a path that is much more powerful and significant for all.”
