Taking on the World, One Student at a Time
STS Foundation is a Department of State sponsored high school exchange program. We are proud to offer American families the opportunity to become citizen diplomats by welcoming an international high school student into their home. By living as a family member the student learns about the American way of life and host families also experience a new culture.
