Located in Nashville, TN, Global Educational Concepts, Inc. (GEC) is a designated sponsor of the U.S. Department of State’s cultural exchange programs. We fully support and believe in the public diplomacy opportunities these exchange programs offer our participants, host families and host organizations.

We seek to provide the best service and support possible to the young people who participate in our programs, while adhering to the regulations that govern these programs. Our program participants can be found living, working, and training all across the U.S.
