Stilwell Student Exchange Program in Chongqing China 

Stilwell International Student Exchange (now renamed ESC International) has been working with SPIRAL from the very beginning. While Stilwell organizes many sorts of international exchanges between China and the US, their partnership with SPIRAL is mostly centered around summer camps.

Every summer, Stilwell sends hundreds of middle and high school students to the US for 3-week programs. The students travel in groups of 30, accompanied by 2 teachers. SPIRAL International works with host schools in Vermont, New Hampshire and Connecticut to set up 2-week camps. During this time, the Chinese young people live with American host families and participate in academic and leisure activities with American students of their own age. The final week is spent visiting New York City, Boston, and Washington DC.

Stillwell’s company philosophy is based on the belief that contact between the Chinese and American people can lead to better knowledge of each other’s lifestyles, cultures, and languages, and that this knowledge can lead to friendship between the US and China which is beneficial to the peoples of both countries.
