"Stay with Us and Visit the World"™
Beyond Exchange (BE) is the cultural exchange wing of BMI. Cultural exchange is a strong part of BE, as it influences our views, values, humor, hopes, loyalties, worries and fears.
The main purpose of establishing this wing, working with other likeminded organizations, and the formation of the cultural exchange program was to promote and maintain respect, tolerance and sensitivity towards different cultures in the USA; further combat discriminatory practices, racial profiling, stereotyping and myths in the different industries caused by lack of cultural education, especially those that arose post 9/11 and continue to affect us till this date.
Education is the key to enlightenment. Our mission is to expose Americans to other cultures through creative, fun, educational yet simple exchange programs that are natural and entertaining. We are also adopting to change and realize that world is a new place post Covid and during a pandemic. While we follow all CDC, WHO and other governmental guidelines, we are striving to continue to offer our programs to participants worldwide, so Americans can continue to learn and interact with various cultures in safest way possible. Our motto during Covid remains:
"How the World Gets to Revisit You"™
