About Us

Established in 1985, Aspect Foundation is a nonprofit organization dedicated to providing richly rewarding study abroad opportunities for youth from more than 30 countries. Our foreign students hail from around the globe, but they all share one dream - to live with a real American family and to attend an American school. Our volunteer host families, in more than 350 communities nationwide, are America's most generous volunteers. Our students and families are supervised and supported by a network of skilled local coordinators who enjoy working with youth and maintaining regular contact with all participants. Schools nationwide appreciate that their local Aspect Foundation representatives are trained, caring professionals who are deeply committed to ensuring that each student enjoys a safe, memorable cultural exchange experience. Our Foundation also provides study abroad opportunities for American youth in order they they may become mature and effective global citizens. Our coordinators nationwide are certified by the US Department of State, and they are dedicated to supporting the public diplomacy objectives of the United States of America. Aspect Foundation welcomes inquiries from prospective coordinators and volunteer host families nationwide. We also offer internship and employment opportunities in our San Francisco home office.
