SUPPORT OUR STUDENTS

In addition to the support received by the many trusted schools around the nation, Face The World relies on an extensive, closely knit network of Community Representatives (CR’s) across the country. CR’s are the heart of our organization as they greatly support both our students and our Host families.

Our student has become part of the family. He participates in family activities, helps with chores, and tried to fully experience American culture. In return we have learned about another culture and feel we bonded with him. My favorite story was when he went to Pike's Peak with us - he was very excited!
