J-1 Inbound Direct Placement

Students have been studying abroad through student exchange programs for more than 65 years. Since then, many families have remained in contact with their host families and now are hosting their children. Is this you? Do you have a family in the United States ready to host you? Let us help you build the bridge to the next generation. This program is available for students between the ages of 15 through 18 and have not completed their high school education in their home country.

Already have a family and ready to come? Start the process here.
