Servas is a worldwide cooperative cultural exchange network established in 1948 and composed of member hosts and travelers working together to foster peace, goodwill and mutual respect. Servas seeks to realize these aims by providing opportunities for person-to-person contacts between people of diverse cultures and backgrounds. Servas’ mission includes providing approved US and international travelers with opportunities to be guests of Servas member hosts around the world.
We are looking forward to meeting Servas members along the way and to participate in the life and work of our hosts and local communities.
