Host a CCI Greenheart Exchange Student
Since 1985, CCI Greenheart has successfully placed over 20,000 international high school students with volunteer host families around the U.S. We are the only "green" exchange organization that connects people and planet by practicing sustainability and encouraging all participants to volunteer and give back to their community. CCI Greenheart currently has exchange students from over 60 countries available to host begining August 2013. We invite you to share your life to change another by hosting a CCI Greenheart exchange student!
You will make the lifelong dream of an international high school student come true, enrich the lives of your family and those in your community and contribute in a significant way to global peace and understanding.
“When we agreed to be a host family in CCI Greenheart's exchange program, we really didn't know what to expect. It has been one of most rewarding experiences of our lives. My wife and I ended up gaining a son and our daughters gained a brother. Mads is a new family member who will be part of our family for years to come.” – Mike, a CCI Greenheart host dad in Ilinois

Thank you for your interest in changing the lives of international exchange students and making a difference in your community!
The Department of State implemented a toll free number (1-866-283-9090) for secondary school students, which was effective August 1, 2009. The toll free number can be used by host families, exchange students and the public to report circumstances impacting the students’ health, safety and well being during their exchange visitor programs.
