MEET THE BOARD

FACEP’s board is comprised of people who bring a wealth of knowledge to help continue to make this non-profit successful. Their experience in various backgrounds allows FACEP to continually grow and improve.

Not only does each board member value international exchanges and building international friendships, but they all have first-hand working knowledge of the benefits this program offers the families and students who participate. Each board member’s family and children have participated in this program at least once.
