“Thank you for joining our loving GE family. You guys are such a blessing for us. Just continue changing people’s life by loving them.”
-Aisulu, Summer 2014
There are many ways to be a part of The Greatest Exchange.
This 4-5 week commitment will include loving on, teaching, serving, and ultimately sharing life with these girls. While opening their home and investing in the students, these families will be the key relationship in introducing them to the true meaning of love, grace, and family.
Host families will also commit to attending a bi-weekly meeting with their Exchanger and the Greatest Exchange team. All girls will also spend two nights a week meeting with the Greatest Exchange Director and Coordinators. The majority of the time that the exchangers spend in America, however, will be with the host families.
They will be responsible for food and lodging and will work their coordinator to provide transportation to and from work (unless biking distance from their job location). Host families will go through 4 training sessions to prepare for the students’ arrival, as well as a debriefing class after the girls leave.
Meals/ Item Delivery:
One of the greatest ways to assist with The Greatest Exchange is to provide dinners for the girls during their Orientation week, Debrief Week, or weekly meetings. Opportunities for summer meals will be posted in January 2020.
Another way is to gift The Greatest Exchange with one of the items on our Amazon Wish List. These items help us to house, feed, and provide for the girls throughout their time in America. The Greatest Exchange 2020 Amazon Wish List can be found here.
It takes $2,500 to fully cover their costs to come to Jacksonville for a summer. 100% of all donations are used to cover the Exchangers’ costs, and all donations are tax-deductible. Donating to The Greatest Exchange is a beautiful picture of laying down our lives for the sake of something greater. Donate
All financial supporters will receive updates following their stories, and will even have the opportunity to meet their girl!
A wonderful way to connect and serve is to assist by driving the girls to/from work. This is a minimum 4 time commitment, in eiher the month of June or month of July.
