ASSE International Student Exchange Program

Local families are being sought to host boys and girls from other countries as high school exchange students.

Families are able to choose a student from a wide variety of backgrounds, countries and personal interests, according to ASSE International Student Exchange Programs, which has put out a call for sponsor families in the Ivanhoe Area.

“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,” ASSE says. The students, ages 15 to 18, are academically selected to be in the program, and arrive with money for their personal expenses and with insurance coverage.
