International Student Exchange Gives Back with New Charity Initiative to Support Underpriviledged Children at Home and Abroad

    BAY SHORE, NY, December 17, 2016 /24-7PressRelease/ — ISE is proud to announce our new charity initiative, ISE Gives Back, designed to provide support to those crucial organizations that create opportunities and lend assistance to greatly underprivileged children in need so that they can grow, participate, and thrive in our global community. Starting this season, ISE will provide two annual six-figure contributions to charities that demonstrate continued commitment to helping underserved children at home and abroad.

Based on their commitment to spending no less than an impressive 85% of their total yearly expenses on programs that directly help children in need, ISE has chosen Children Incorporated as its domestic philanthropic partner. Children Incorporated has worked diligently for 50+ years to assist impoverished children throughout all 50 states and we look forward to becoming a valuable partner in their domestic network. Since ISE works with over 45 different countries, our international contribution will be allocated to a different overseas charity each year. This year’s recipient is Nuevo Futuro, a Spain-based charity that focuses on providing care and social advancement to children and adolescents deprived of healthy and stable family environments.

ISE has always believed in growing an educated global community and is proud to be able to contribute to this cause in ways beyond the exchange experience that our organization specializes in. As a leader in the J-1 exchange industry, we believe it is a successful organization’s civic duty to devote as much time, capital, and effort as possible to giving back. It is our strong belief that these domestic and international contributions will provide much needed support, compassion, and resources to those who need it most.

International Student Exchange is a non-profit high school exchange program committed to bringing the people of the world together while fostering international peace through local action. Our programs have been enriching lives since 1982, and we take great pride in providing the highest-quality cultural exchange programs and service to our students, volunteer host families, schools, and local communities.
