thanks and welcome

for visiting

to JIES!

At Joy International Exchange Students, we are dedicated to the promotion of cultural understanding, academic development and understanding of different cultures through academic home-stay programs. 

It is our philosophy that greater understanding and tolerance of others are developed through interaction on a personal level. 

Joy International Exchange Students offers middle school and high school academic year programs, inbound, and the short term homestay programs.

Joy International Exchange Students operates through a network of area coordinators throughout the United States who provide support on a local level. Coordinators interview and screen host families and supervise the program during the student's stay. Area coordinators, as well as all parties concerned, are required to submit progress reports once a month. Area coordinators also submit monthly reports.
