Compass USA started promoting programs that build intercultural understanding in 2000. Annually, 1800 students live and experience a variety of resident, camp and homestay opportunities. Compass USA homestay and cultural experiences surpass typical vacations or tours. Participants learn to look beyond language, color and customs to discover the true character of others; a process that Compass USA believes will bring people of the world closer together - one student at a time. We want to make these international opportunities available to more American families by developing relationships with like-minded organizations, families and people that want to build international friendships in their own communities.
Our unique experiences for youth groups and individuals give them opportunities to build international friendships that will last a lifetime while improving their language skills, learning about American and international cultures and seeing the USA!
