ISE’s Exchange Students Reach Out Through Project HELP at Lost But Not Forgotten Event!

ISE's Project HELP - Lost But Not Forgotten Event in Roseville CA

A team of ISE’s exchange students recently volunteered through our Project HELP program at a Lost But Not Forgotten event in Roseville, California. Lost But Not Forgotten’s mission is to identify and adopt local families with teens experiencing a temporary hardship that doesn’t allow them to be able to supply the material Christmas to their family. This organization strives to resolve this issue for all the children in the family. Our exchange students truly enjoy giving back to their local communities!

You can make a difference in a young person’s life by hosting an international exchange student. ISE is a certified non-profit organization founded in 1982 and has provided quality exchange programs for over 30,000 exchange students. We are looking for host families in California.

Enrich your family, local high school, and community with new ideas and perspectives. International exchange students form a broader view in our education system and help us make it world-class. International student exchange helps globalize United States education.

ISE believes that exchange programs provide a distinct opportunity for personal growth and development, so we strive to bring this experience to as many foreign students and host families as possible. Hosting an international student often leads to the development of deep connections and lasting friendships. As you spend time together, engage in activities, and share experiences, you may form meaningful bonds that can endure beyond their time as a student.  It is our goal for this opportunity to bring the people of the world closer together through the relationships created between visiting students, host families and the local community. Check out GoodDay Doing Good’s enjoyable video, “Lost But Not Forgotten” to see highlights from this heartwarming, local, community event in Roseville, California.
