Kroger Foods, a division of The Kroger Co., recently released its, “Magic Happens When We Bring New Traditions to the Table” 2023 holiday video on YouTube. (Video created by The Kroger Co. , all rights reserved. Trademarks belong to their respective owners.) Set to recording artist, Ed Sheeran’s popular tune, “Photograph”, the video features an animated couple’s heartwarming journey through the years of their international student exchange experience. It’s been provoking an emotional response from its many viewers. Without divulging the story or spoiling the ending, suffice it to say that this video has the potential to move even the toughest of holiday cynics to tears from Ebenezer Scrooge, Mr. Potter, and the Grinch, to even melting through Rankin/Bass’ Winter Warlock’s icy heart.
ISE host families host students from Italy, Spain, the Netherlands, France, the Czech Republic, Germany, Brazil, Thailand, South Korea, and more. Through their 10-month exchange program, the students will experience American high school life with their volunteer host families.
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 throughout the United States.
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.
