About Our Program

The purpose of the Exchange Visitor Program is to increase mutual understanding between the people of the United States and the people of other countries by means of educational and cultural exchange.

International educational and cultural exchanges are by far one of the most effective means of developing lasting and meaningful relationships.

The program provides an extremely valuable opportunity to experience the United States and the American way of life firsthand. At the conclusion of their program Exchange Visitor participants will return to their home country to utilize the experience and skills they have acquired while in the United States.

This program has been used effectively for many years to enhance the overall education of our children by exposing them to the culture and diversity of professionally qualified and experienced international educators.

ITES, as authorized by the U.S. Department of State, is a designated sponsor of the Exchange Visitor Program to facilitate the entry of foreign nationals into the United States as exchange visitors to complete the objectives of the Exchange Visitor Program.

"I want to see more exchanges. So the exchange programs should be accelerated, in my view, to include many more opportunities, and we’re going to do that."
