Atlanta is a very modern city, “The Capitol of the South,” with an international flavor. It is the home of the Civil Rights movement in the South and the world’s busiest airport.
 
 
The Atlanta program is FAST-PACED and BUSY, so be prepared for a lot of fun. From 9:30AM to about 7:30-8 PM four days during your week, you will be out seeing famous Atlanta sites and meeting people, as members from different area churches serve you lunch and dinner every day. You may visit the Martin Luther King, Jr. Center, Stone Mountain (the world's largest monolith), tour an international television station, participate in a mock trial, visit the Carter Presidential Library, the World of Coke, the Georgia State Capitol and may even meet the Governor. You may also view the various sites of the 1996 Atlanta Olympics- the Olympic Village and Stadium. For the other three days, including Sunday, Christmas Eve and Christmas day, you will be with your American family, participating in their lives.

Most of all we want to get to know you, learn about your country, your interests and generate longtime friendships. We are very excited to welcome you into our homes.
