The work we do helps people learn more about themselves, grow, and bridge differences with others. We help people develop new ways to support themselves as they push their own boundaries, make new connections, and gain fresh perspectives.

At CIEE, our mission is central to what we do, but committed, inspired people make us who we are. We’re always looking for outstanding, highly motivated people who want to make a difference and who thrive in a fast-paced, collaborative environment. If you're up to the challenge, we have opportunities – domestic and international – that could be right for you.

​We love what we do and where we do it.

Our corporate headquarters is located in Portland, Maine. A city that’s earned superlative titles – from the nation’s “Foodiest” to “America’s Most Livable” to “America’s Greenest City” – Portland’s diversity, international flair, world-class cultural offerings, and small-town sense of community make it a perfect fit. “Outside Magazine” named Portland one of “The Greatest Places to Live in America.” 

Our beautiful, modern headquarters are a landmark in the city’s historic Old Port district. Whether we’re hosting a foreign film screening, a panel discussion with a Nobel Peace Laureate, or a cultural event for local high school students, we’re committed to fostering understanding and developing connections between local and global communities.
