Host families sought for exchange students

Print Article

ASSE Student Exchange Programs is now looking for American families to host high school students from Eurasia, Germany and countries with significant Muslim populations.

All these exceptional students have received scholarships through the U.S. State Department sponsored programs: Future Leaders Exchange Program, Congress Bundestag Youth Exchange Program and Kennedy Lugar Youth Exchange and Study Program. These scholarship recipients will spend an academic year in the U.S.

The U.S. State Department programs seek to foster democracy and values inherent in a free market economy. Your support of these students and programs like this reinforces the United States’ commitment to education and opportunity throughout the world.

ASSE is currently seeking host families for these well-qualified, bright, motivated and well-screened students coming from various parts of the world, including Latvia, Ukraine, Poland, Egypt, Jordan, Ghana and Germany. By living with local host families and attending local high schools, these scholarship students acquire an understanding of American values and build on leadership skills.

If you are interested in opening your home and sharing your family life with a young person from abroad, please contact us today for more information, call (800) 733-2773, go online at www.ASSEhosts.com or email asseusawest@asse.com

Founded by the Swedish National Department of Education, ASSE International (formerly American Scandinavian Student Exchange) is a non-profit, tax-exempt, public benefit organization. ASSE is officially designated as an exchange visitor program by the United States Department of State and cooperates with the Canadian Provincial Ministries of Education.
