Julie Welsh joins International Cultural Exchange Services

Turner, MT - 4/2/2024 – International Cultural Exchange Services (ICES) welcomes Julie Welsh as a new Local Coordinator.

"I live on a farm/ranch in rural North Central Montana. My husband and I have three grown sons and one daughter who is 10. We hosted an exchange student several years ago, and now I hope to help students come to our small community to learn more about our small community to learn more about our lifestyle. I enjoy riding horses, nature, hiking, reading, and board games, and I also coach high school girls' basketball!

I'm excited to work with exchange students because I want to learn about other cultures and bring that experience to the students in our local school."

Julie is excited for this new opportunity to work with international high school students and the local families that host them and feels that having exchange students in our local schools and communities increase mutual understanding and improves relationships between countries. Julie will be working with families and schools in Turner and in the surrounding area.

Julie is currently looking for families that would like to host for the school year of 2024. Exchange students live as a member of the host family-not a guest or boarder. They participate in family activities, follow host family rules, and help with chores. Students have their own medical insurance and spending money to cover all personal expenses; Host families provide room & board and loving parental guidance to the student. As the Local Coordinator, Julie is available to answer questions, give advice, and provide general support to students and host families throughout the experience. For more information about hosting or working with ICES, please contact Julie Welsh at

ICES is a nonprofit organization dedicated to promoting a peaceful world by increasing international awareness and understanding through cultural sharing experiences.
