Student Exchange began in 2013 blending the cultural and academic exchange experience into one well-rounded opportunity for middle and high-school-aged international students.  Combining the cultural experience typically associated with J-1 programs and the traditional academic expectations of the F-1 program, Student Exchange gives the broadest possible experience to international exchange students.

Jennifer Annes

Director of High School Programs

Jennifer is the new Director of High School Programs. She brings valuable industry experience with children and family services for over 18 years, as a foster parent, care provider for teens in a group home setting, crisis line director, non-profit executive, and as Regional Director placing hundreds of exchange students.

"The stories I hear and the connections I have made with local coordinators, students, and host families even years later are one of the motivations for continuing to do this work. Sometimes we don't even know the impact we have made on someone's life. Sometimes we do get a little glimpse, and that is a priceless gift."
