Families sought to host exchange students
ASSE International Student Exchange Programs (formerly American Scandinavian Student Exchange) 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 more, call Teresa Weyer at 616-560-1893 or 1-800-733-2773.
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.
