NW Services, Inc. PEACE Program prides itself on accepting students who display serious academic interest and achievement, exemplary character, curiosity, adaptability, and good command of the English language.
Students range in age from 15 to 18 years old and arrive from more than 20 different countries around the world. Students are selected from direct interviews as well as independent organizations overseas who recruit, interview and screen potential student candidates. All international exchange students must be recommended by principals and teachers in their home schools to be accepted.
Students have complete medical coverage for the entire duration of their stay in the United States. The natural parents provide a monthly allowance to cover the cost of school supplies, yearbooks, photos, bus fare, movies, etc. while the host families are responsible for room, board, and participation in family activities.
We encourage all student to participate in cross-cultural activities while on program which will give them a broader understanding of American culture and society. We also encourage students to participate in various volunteer activities in their host communities so they can learn more about American culture first hand.
The heart of the NW Services PEACE Program stresses family living as the core learning experience —offering international students the chance to share in other cultures through personal involvement in the homes, schools and communities of their host country.
