Share the Joy, Traditions and Stories of Your Holidays with a High School Student from Abroad

ASSE International Student Exchange Programs (ASSE), a non-profit, public benefit organization, is inviting American families to discover the many rewards of hosting a foreign exchange student. 

ASSE exchange students hail from more than 50 countries worldwide, including Italy, France, Spain, Brazil, and Thailand, among others. They are between the ages of 15 and 18, and they are eager to experience American culture, family life, school, sports, and more. They also enjoy sharing their own culture and language with their host families, who open their homes to them as if they were members of their own families. This provides everyone involved with a rich cultural experience. 

Host families can be single parents, couples, or single people. Exchange students arrive with pocket money for personal expenses and full health, accident, and liability insurance. ASSE students are chosen based on their academic and personal qualities, and host families choose their students from a wide range of backgrounds, nations, and interests. 

Those interested in hosting an exchange student this fall should contact Saphia Lesch at 1-800-736-1760, visit, or send an email to to learn more or begin the application process. Students are eager to learn about their American host family, so start the process of welcoming your new son or daughter today. The memories and the friendships you create with your exchange student will be cherished forever.
