30 Years of NWSE
Since 1987, NorthWest Student Exchange has provided thousands of high school students, host families, high schools, and other program participants with educational and international cultural exchange experiences that have created life-long personal relationships and expanded their career and networking opportunities.
This page is a place for NWSE alumni to re-connect over your time in the NWSE community and explore career networking opportunities with other alumni. Please join our community if you have been involved with NWSE as a participant, host family, coordinator, or team member, and share your professional endeavors and accomplishments with us.
We all do our own things, know different groups of people, and have our own unique experiences. This means we all have something valuable to contribute to the NWSE Alumni network.
See what fellow NWSE Alumni are up to and join our new NWSE LinkedIn Group! It’s a place for our Alumni to reconnect over your time in the NWSE community, reminisce about your exchange, talk about the future, and explore potential career and business opportunities with other NWSE Alumni.
Who should join? Former NWSE students, host families, coordinators, and team members. Share your professional endeavors and accomplishments!
NWSE’s Next Exchange Student!
Encourage others to have the same amazing experience you had. Maybe you’ve heard from other families, friends or students who are interested in our high school exchange program?
Your NWSE Team is now accepting applications for our Direct Placement program. This program is designed for students who already know a family in the U.S. who would like to host them. Students begin classes in Fall 2018.
If you know a student who would like to study abroad and has a host family in mind, please let us know. We will contact them and help them put their plan into action!
For each participant that successfully comes to the U.S. through your referral, we will provide you with a $175 Thank You reward – or we will donate that amount to a nonprofit organization of your choice.
