Council for Educational Travel

Council for Educational Travel, USA (CETUSA) is a not-for-profit international student exchange organization coordinating exchange experiences for high school students, university students and young professionals. CETUSA is a US Department of State Exchange Visitor (J-1 visa) sponsor organization.
The mission of CETUSA is “reaching out to encourage a lifelong journey of global peace and understanding” for the students, host families and communities that are part of the exchange experience.
Founded in 1995 by Rick Anaya and Terry Watson in San Clemente, California, CETUSA has coordinated exchanges for over 80,000 students. Those students and the communities where they live are forever impacted by the opportunity to understand and respect what makes each culture unique.
Programs with CETUSA include:
a semester or year long high school exchange with host family placement,
an outbound program where high school students in the USA can study abroad,
a training program for young professionals and
an internship program for university students.
Each program has specific eligibility requirements with the opportunity to live in cities and towns across the United States.
