ASSE International Student Exchange Programs is looking for local families to host boys and girls ages 15-18 for the next academic year. Students from all over the world – places like Germany, Spain, Italy, Japan and Ukraine, to name a few – are excited to study in the United States
Preparations are well underway for the 2022-2023 program year and the arrival of students this autumn. ASSE students come with an enthusiasm to practice their English and experience American culture – food, sports, shopping and more. They also love to share their own culture with their host families – who welcome them not as guests, but as family members – giving both the students and families a rich cultural experience.
In addition, ASSE students have pocket money for personal expenses, along with health, accident and liability insurance. ASSE students are selected for participation based on academics and good citizenship. Host families can choose their students from a wide variety of backgrounds, countries and personal interests.
ASSE’s top concern is the health of host families, host communities and exchange students. Even as the United States and many other countries continue to live under temporary stay-at-home orders, these students will not travel unless it is considered safe to do so by the U.S. and foreign governmental agencies entrusted with public health and safety.
To become a host family, or to find out how to become involved with ASSE, call the ASSE Eastern Regional Office, 1-800-677-2773 or go to www.host.asse.com to begin your host family application.
