Children of All Nation’s newest program offers opportunities for high school students from China to visit the United States, study for a year in a local high school, and live with a host family to learn more about American culture. Are you interested in sharing about your traditions while learning more about Chinese customs? Then our J-1 Visa High School Program is for you!
Learn just a little bit about the students in our program by getting in touch with a Program Coordinator
Host families are expected to provide meals, a room, and a supportive environment for these students to live, grow, and study in. Students will come with their own spending money and an open heart for your family! In return, you’ll get all the benefits of travel and learning about another culture without ever having to leave your home. While families cannot receive compensation for hosting a student, there is an approved IRS deduction of $50 per month families can quote on their taxes. This is a volunteer opportunity to reach out into the world and make it just a little smaller, connecting one family to another across an ocean.
Our three students from China have written amazing welcome letters to their potential host families, and we would be excited to tell you more about each one of them. If you think you’re ready to open your heart and home to one of these students, click here to contact an SAE Program Coordinator Today!
From Our Students and Their Families
A Meet “A”
Anyway, my friends all said I have a great temper, because there isn‘t something that can drive me really mad. I have tons of friends, even foreigners. And I guess that is because I love communicating with different people. I‘m looking forward to living with you, and experiencing the life in America!
L From “L’s” Parents
I sincerely thank you for your hospitality and I also hope my daughter will bring you infinite joy and everlasting memories in the coming year. Hopefully, you will find time to visit and we will surely give you a sincere and warm welcome.
N Meet “N”
I also love sci-fi, I am a big fun of ‘Star Wars’ and ‘Star Trek’. I want to be a captain and travel in space like James Kirk. If you think that’s all, then you are definitely wrong. I like old classical movies too, my favorite series is ‘Indiana Jones’ and ‘Back to the Future.’ I like spy movies and comedy film, too!

BECOME A LOCAL COORDINATOR!
Not ready to be a host family yourself, but know lots of people in your community excited about cultural exchange? Consider becoming a Local Coordinator with SAE, and get paid to help students achieve their dream of coming to the United States for a year of study!
Local Coordinators are contracted to work with Student Ambassador Exchange. LCs have an exciting, flexible role in the J-1 Visa Secondary Student Program because they get to manage their own schedule and set their own methods of recruitment for host families and schools. LCs must be able to provide for their own travel expenses and supply materials needed for the position.
