The Greenheart of Cultural Exchange




Established in 1985, CCI Greenheart is a nonprofit international educational exchange organization based in Chicago, IL.  

Our Mission: To promote cultural understanding, academic development, environmental consciousness and world peace 

CCI Greenheart organizes high school exchange, short-term homestays, ESL camps, intern and trainee, summer work travel programs in the U.S. and through the Greenheart Travel division, study, teach, work, volunteer, and language programs in over 35 countries around the world. CCI now sends and receives close to 10,000 participants annually — a remarkable increase since our first seven students participated in the high school exchange program in 1985. In 2004, we adopted Greenheart as our environmental and social initiative. Greenheart connects people and planet through environmentalism, fair trade, social transformation and cross cultural understanding.                                                                                                                CCI Greenheart is more than a cultural exchange organization. We offer opportunities to our American participants to make a difference in the world through active participation in environmental and social service projects via the Greenheart Club. We encourage our staff to volunteer in their community and practice socially responsible business practices.  Greenheart is a worldwide movement promoting environmentally sustainable principles and practices, personal evolution and social transformation.
