Jason Patterson, Vice President of the FACEP Board first experienced the value of cultural exchange as a teenager when his family hosted a French high school student. The exchange families remain life-long friends to this day. Jason has decades of experience conducting business with multinational companies throughout the world. Jason wants his children to have a similar experience of learning other cultures and languages to broaden their world perspective at an early age. FACEP provides that opportunity. After his daughter participated several times in the program, Jason joined the board to help provide the exchange experience to every child possible.
