Amicus International Student Exchange

Connecting Cultures, Building Leaders, Changing Lives.

Amicus connects students and families across cultures offering a school-year experience of learning, community and the adventurous life through Young Life.

Since 1980, Amicus, meaning "friend" in Latin, has hosted more than 1,500 international students from 33 countries. Amicus is much more than a 10-month exchange opportunity for international students to live with an American family. It's cultural learning and understanding; it's an incubator for developing leaders; it's students stepping out in courage and adventures.

Amicus connects the world one family and one student at a time!
