Experience a different culture and travel abroad! The International Exchange Program offers exchange opportunities for Columbia and Howard County residents with Columbia’s five Sister Cities, Cergy-Pontoise, France; Tres Cantos, Spain; Tema, Ghana; Cap-Haitien, Haiti; and Liyang, China.
Travel to one of Columbia’s Sister Cities for one or two week trips organized by CA Program Manager for International Exchanges based on community desires. Travel abroad and/or become a host for visitors from one of our Sister Cities. Exchanges for adults have been organized for cuisine, art and music. Youth exchanges are organized every summer for high school students.
