“Building Bridges Between Cultures and People, One Family at a Time”  

Have you have ever considered hosting an international student?
Have you ever considered giving your child a chance to visit China?
If the answer to either of these questions is “YES”, AYC can make it happen! 

For the last 12 years, AYC has been bringing families from China and the US together for the sole purpose of promoting understanding and respect between the wonderful people of these two great nations. Although AYC has many programs that strive to meet this goal, our most meaningful and powerful intercultural program is our USA-China Student Exchange. Through this program American families host Chinese students for short term visits. In return, American students make short term cultural trips to China. Through these experiences families from both countries learn to truly appreciate and value each other.  


China Trip Highlight

American students will visit historical and historical sites in China. The Great Wall, The Forbidden City, Tiananmen and many other sites and museums are included in AYC trips. AYC students spend time in actual Chinese schools, attending classes, living in dorms, engaging in school activities and eating what real Chinese students eat. AYC students also spend time with Chinese families. Students who take part in an AYC Exchange program ‘experience life as it really is in China’.
