Fostering Peace and Understanding

What is ISSE?

The International School-to-School Experience (ISSE) is a unique international program for schools that provides for the exchange of thoughts and ideas through face-to-face contact with children from other countries around the world. It is non-profit, non-political, and non-religious in nature.

The program gives all 10-12 year old school children the opportunity to experience and understand other cultures on a first-hand basis. It is an innovative approach for schools that realize the importance of international experience in modern school education.

The best part about an exchange program is living with friends and learning about everyday life. I also really enjoyed the day trips and learning about other peoples’ communities. There is just so much to see and do. So many great new friends to meet. I especially love trying new food and the exciting sightseeing tours.
