Step 8

Keep an active voice on social

Sharing existing stories about exchange is an excellent way to keep the interest in cultural exchange alive. Get familiar with our social channels and share stories that inspire you.



Share one of your own exchange stories

What motivated you to get more involved with exchange? Whether you hosted before or have interesting travel experiences, sharing those stories on social media can help pique interest in exchange.

We encourage you to share your personal stories and photos - but if you'd like to share branded material, download our EF social media assets below.
