Hvert år hjælper Thunder Exchange danske studerende afsted på high school i USA. De studerer på godkendte High Schools og bor hos frivillige Amerikanske værtsfamilier, og oplever ”the American way of life” og den specielle ”High School Spirit”. De opbygger bånd og får livslange venskaber med Amerikanere. For mange udvekslings studenter bliver året en ”life-changing” oplevelse.
Samarbejds organisationer i Danmark:
DAFF (Dansk Amerikansk Fodbold Forbund)
Thunder Exchange har siden starten haft et tæt samarbejde med DAFF’s (Dansk Amerikansk Fodbold Forbund) Direktør – Lars Carlsen. Samarbejdet er over årene blevet stærkere, specielt i forbindelse med Elite programmet.
DBBF (Dansk Basket Ball Forbund)
Thunder Exchange og DBBF er i 2021 begyndt samarbejde ifbm, at hjælpe unge Basket spillere til USA for at blive udvekslings studerende og dyrke den sport de elsker.
WYC was founded by our longtime partners Mrs. June Miller and Mrs. Tiffany King
June Miller, President:
My heart and passion are to make the world a better place. I love working with youth worldwide. I have worked with high school exchange students for over 20 years, serving in all areas of the exchange industry, including personally hosting over 40 exchange students in my own home. Over the years, I have learned the areas of improvement that would make exchange better. This is how World Youth Connections was formed.
Tiffany King, Vice President:
Working together with June for almost 10 years, my heartbeat is to make a difference in the world. I love working with people from all walks of life. Seeing people grow through relationships and change for the better is what fuels my passion to work with the World Youth Connection. I also have personally had the opportunity to host 18 exchange students in my home. We are so excited you are interested in our organization and in joining the mission to make the world a better place. Together we can!
