International High School Artists Are Coming

A NoHo-based exchange company is looking for fun East Valley host families to host an international high school artist for a semester.

L.A. Cultural Exchange
L.A. Cultural Exchange
We are a family run, North Hollywood-based cultural exchange agency that brings international students ages 15-18 to study in L.A. high schools for one or two semesters. The majority of our exchange students are artists (dancers, actors, singers, musicians, visual artists, writers, etc.) who train in the NoHo Arts District after school. Our goal is to give our students a memorable experience, and that ALWAYS starts with loving host families.  We look for fun, open, communicative host families of all shapes and sizes who:  


  • Live in the Los Angeles Unified School District (LAUSD)
  • Provide a separate, furnished bedroom, meals
  •  Make the student feel like a member of the family
  •  Include the student on family outings and activities

In order to provide an optimum Los Angeles experience for our students, families receive a $700 monthly stipend to cover the costs associated with hosting in a large city. *Our students come with full health coverage and their own spending money*

“Jana fit right in and became our German daughter immediately. We were first time host parents and L.A. Cultural Exchange was loving, kind and helpful to us and their students. This made the difference for us.   Lisa, Lake Balboa

"We must thank Enzo for bringing such joy to our family. My sons are taking Italian lessons  so when we visit our family (and their brother Enzo) in Puglia, they will speak our family's language!"
Marco, Granada Hills

"We loved having Sofia join our family's 'band.' We are so grateful you placed a musically gifted young lady in our musically inclined family. She helped my daughter like the piano again and we helped her improve her English...and make a mean grilled cheese. We're heading to Brazil next December to see her!" – Maureen, Encino

We are a hands-on and personalized exchange program that is active in our students’ lives. Please see our Facebook and Instagram page for some of the fun activities we do with our students. In the end, it's all about the experience, our student's and host family's.

I am a host mom for L.A. Cultural Exchange. My words can't express how rewarding my experience has been having one of their students here with me. Lisa, who heads the placements of kids here in LA, was totally hands-on from the start and made sure my student and I were a good match for each other. She did so by well thought-out screenings on both ends. Overall, I've been impressed by Lisa and her commitment to giving these students the best best American experience they can have while they are here from providing them with lessons and extracurricular activities outside of school to making sure that not only the child has been placed in a 'family' but that we, as host parents, have become part of a family too with L.A. Cultural Exchange!
