Community Impact

We can all learn from a student exchange. At Amicus, we believe that schools benefit from hosting exchange students and by opening their doors to international students they help create a classroom setting that promotes knowledge and understanding of other cultures.

While exchanges offer international students an American experience, they also help educate American students about values, attitudes and customs of another country. As new perspectives are shared, students gain a more balanced understanding of the world.

Exchange students attract the attention of the local community and open new doors of friendship. By getting acquainted with neighbors, school officials, and church and business leaders, an exchange student can serve as a valuable resource for civic, church and professional groups.
