Ayusa empowers high school students to develop leadership skills and global knowledge to become the next generation of world leaders.
Ayusa is a non-profit designated by the U.S. Department of State to bring high school students ages 15-18 from around the world to the U.S. for an academic year. Students live with volunteer American host families, attend local high schools, and become part of the community in which they live.
Ayusa host families live in every state in the U.S., in big cities and small towns. Students might live with a family in a more rural area where they can enjoy nature and hikes, or an urban environment full of city sights and sounds. Ayusa host families are carefully screened and provide a loving home environment for international students. Ayusa high school students come from more than 40 different countries around the world and are excited to experience the United States!
