Hosts for exchange students sought

ASSE International Student Exchange Programs is seeking local host families for boys and girls 15 to 18 years of age coming to this area for the upcoming school year.

The students speak English and are bright, curious and anxious to learn about this country through living as part of a family, attending high school and sharing their own cultures and languages with their newly adopted host families.

The exchange students arrive from their home country shortly before school begins and return at the end of the school year. Each ASSE student is fully insured, brings his or her own personal spending money, and expects to bear his or her share of household responsibilities, as well as be included in normal family activities.

The students are well screened and qualified by ASSE. Families may select the youngster of their choice from extensive student applications, family photos and biographical essays. Students and families are encouraged to begin corresponding prior to the student’s arrival.

ASSE is also seeking local high school students to become ASSE exchange students abroad. Students should be between 15 and 18 years old and interested in living with a host family, attending school and learning about other lands and people. Academic year and shorter-term summer vacation programs are available.

For information on becoming a host family or an exchange student, call 1-800-733-2773.
