The Exchange Visitor Program promotes mutual understanding between the people of the United States and the people of other countries by educational and cultural exchanges.  Foreign teachers have the opportunity to teach in accredited primary and secondary schools in the United States.  Exchange teachers sharpen their professional skills and participate in cross-cultural activities in schools and communities, and they return to their home country after the exchange to share their experiences and increased knowledge of the United States and the U.S. educational system.
