The Experiment in International Living
The Pioneer in International Education
History of The Experiment in International Living
In 1932, a small group of young Americans sailed across the Atlantic fueled by the power of an idea. Their mission was to foster peace through understanding, communication, and cooperation. After 76 years and more than 70,000 participants, The Experiment in International Living continues to be a leader in the field of international cross-cultural education for high school students.
Experiment in International Living programs challenge young people to open their hearts and minds to the world. Each program in 28 countries around the globe immerses participants in the daily life of another culture. For three to five weeks, Experimenters focus on themes such as community service, language training, ecology, travel, or the arts, as they enjoy life with their host families and participate in activities with their group.
Supported by experienced group leaders and in-country guides, students build communication skills, increase their self-confidence, and enhance their global awareness. Whatever their destination and focus, all Experiment programs engage students in a profoundly moving educational journey of cultural exploration and discovery.
