Local Families Needed for Cultural Exchange Students
Wednesday, August 3, 2011 • Posted August 4, 2011

ASSE International Student Exchange Programs (ASSE) is seeking local families to host boys and girls between the ages of 15 to 18 from a variety of countries around the world.

Students come with an enthusiasm to practice their English and experience American culture — food, sports, shopping and more. They will also share their own culture with host families. Host families welcome these students into their family, not as a guest, but as a family member, giving both the students and families a rich cultural experience.

In addition, students have pocket money for personal expenses; and full health, accident and liability insurance. Students are academically selected for the program, and host families can choose their students from a wide variety of backgrounds, countries and personal interests.

To become a host family or to find out how to become involved with ASSE in your community, please call Lisa Ries at 1-800-473-0696 at the ASSE Southern Regional Office. There are many students to choose from, so call – and begin the process of welcoming your new son or daughter into your family today! www.asse.com
