FACES is an eight (8) week cultural exchange program from Guatemala, C.A. Our program offers an enriching experience through the exchange of cultures within an educational environment. FACES provides participants with tools to grow as individuals; it also facilitates the human and cultural development of young people between the ages of ten and eighteen by preparing them to be Cultural Ambassadors from Guatemala. These students go through a careful selection process based on specific criteria and requirements to ensure their success.

Exchange Program Objectives
We are cultural ambassadors!
FACES is a cultural exchange program between Guatemala and the United States. We build cross-cultural relationships among all of our participants: students, host family members, teachers, and school administrators. Our students also develop academically, socially, and linguistically. As our ambassadors leave their comfort zone and take on challenges in the safe and controlled environment of a host home and school, they and everyone around them are able to build cultural bridges in a highly interconnected world.
