1 ABOUT CIEE CIEE is the leading U.S. non-governmental international education organization. CIEE creates and administers programs that allow high school and university students and educators to study, volunteer, work and teach abroad. Into the chilly postwar world of 1947, CIEE launched the next generation of study abroad programs, the first since they’d been suspended during World War II. Senators and scholars worried about how to increase international understanding and establish trust between nations. As soon as there was enough capacity aboard trans-Atlantic ships to carry students, CIEE programs began teaching. Today, CIEE is composed of three interrelated but operationally independent entities based in Portland, Maine; Boston, Massachusetts; and Tokyo, Japan. Our membership continues to grow.membership Among many activities, CIEE administers 95 study abroad programs in over 33 host countries and teaching programs in Chile, China, Spain, and Thailand. Educators can participate in 26 summer seminars in 29 countries. Our 50 U.S. specialists, many of whom have studied or lived abroad can advise you how to choose a host country and program that fits you. We also have English-speaking staff members at all of our program sites overseas. They'll help with any problem — academic, administrative or day-to-day — and give you insider tips on the city and country. Who could argue? We need understanding and trust more than ever today. Gain that understanding, build that trust on a CIEE program.
