Host families sought for exchange program

The nonprofit ASSE International Student Exchange Program, in cooperation with local community high schools, is looking for local families to host boys and girls between ages 15 to 18 from a variety of countries: Norway, Denmark, Spain, Italy, Japan, to name a few.

ASSE students are enthusiastic and excited to experience American culture while they practice their English. They also love to share their own culture and language with their host families. Host families welcome these students, not as guests, but as family members, giving everyone involved a rich cultural experience.

The exchange students have pocket money for personal expenses and full health, and accident and liability insurance. They are selected based on academics and personality, and host families can choose their students from a wide variety of backgrounds, countries and personal interests.

To become an ASSE Host Family or to learn how to become involved with ASSE in your community, please call Cindy at 800-733-2773 or go to to begin your host family application. Students are eager to learn about their American host family, so begin the process of welcoming your new son or daughter today!
