SHARE! has relationships with partners located in each country our students come from. These agents: 

  • Promote SHARE! in their country and recruit prospective students who apply for the program;

  • Collect from students an application, academic transcripts, medical information, and a teacher’s reference;

  • Personally interview students to determine English proficiency and personal qualification for the program;

  • Send to SHARE! the applications of students they have approved; SHARE! then conducts the final screening;

  • Provide students with a pre-arrival orientation covering the rules and regulations of the program, as well as expectations and important aspects of life in the United States.
