AYP is an abbreviation of Academic Year Program. Students from the world, despite of their regions, races or cultural differences, can have the opportunity to live in the local volunteer host families, have a deep understanding of the historic background and community culture of US, and experience its unique educational ideas and models with J1 visa. With the deepening of international relations, there is a sharp increase in China’s economy and increasing presence in international affairs of China.
As a result, the international culture exchange program is playing an increasingly important role in the education of Chinese high school students. Besides, teenagers in the world become more and more positive in the international culture exchange program in order to improve their capabilities, integrate themselves in the diverse cultural environment and broaden their horizon.
