About ISE

International Student Exchange is a nonprofit organization that helps to bridge the gap between American families and cultures of the world. By promoting cultural understanding and education, ISE’s mission is to help the many different nations of the world find common ground and diplomatic paths to world peace.

Located in Babylon, NY, ISE has been working for more than thirty years to offer students from over 45 different countries quality homes and education in the United States. As a sponsor for the J-1 Exchange Visitor Visa ISE puts safety, education, community, and cultural understanding as its top priorities. Students who participate in the program are placed in accredited schools, with qualified families interested in learning about different ways of life.

ISE host families are volunteers, with many hosting year after year. Our blog is loaded with stories and photos from years of successful placements. Please take a look around and see what some of the tremendous accomplishments made possible by this program.
