Host a Foreign Exchange student

The Educational Development Resource Trust/SHARE Foreign Exchange Program is seeking host families for school year 2024-25.

The organization is CSIET-certified and follows the regulations of the Department of State.

5-month or 10-month programs allow students from other countries to attend school in the US.

The students start arriving in August to start school for the first semester or the whole school year.

We have students from Poland, Germany, Italy, Spain, France, Czech Republic, and other countries. They go through an extensive application and review process to be accepted into this program.

Host families are also screened through an application process and must have their Pennsylvania child abuse and criminal history background checks. The host family has the opportunity to choose the country and student that best matches their family’s interests.

This program is rewarding for both family and students. Most times the host family and student create a bond that lasts a lifetime.

To learn more, call your local exchange program coordinator, Sandra, at 717.476.5884 or the regional office at 800.900.3738 or visit
