In 1996, PAX became one of a select few USDOS-designated Exchange Visitor Programs chosen to participate in FLEX—and has been honored to do so ever since. Through the program, students live with host families, attend high school, engage in activities to learn about American society and values, acquire leadership skills, and help educate Americans about their countries and cultures. PAX matches students with caring families, works with interested schools, and provides support for all involved.
