Local Families Needed for Cultural Exchange Students
Share Your Home for a Year. Enjoy a Friendship for a Lifetime.
ASSE International Student Exchange Programs (ASSE) is seeking local families to host boys and girls between the ages of 15 to 18 from a variety of countries around the world.
Exchange 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 into 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 how to become involved with ASSE in your community, please call Robin Fruia at (903)452-0156 or the ASSE Southern Regional Office at 1-800-473-0696 or Emai: asseUSAsouth@asse.com or email@example.com

When you host a foreign exchange student, your entire family will discover a world of fun and enlightening adventure. Simply by sharing your home for as little as three months, a semester or a school year, you will be giving an exceptional young person from another country the opportunity of a lifetime—to live with your family and experience the language, customs and culture of our country. In return, your exchange student will bring to your family a bit of his or her homeland. Students come from Europe, Asia/Pacific, the Middle East, the Americas and South Africa.
Having an exchange student in your home is much like having an adopted teenage son or daughter from overseas. ASSE students do their share of the family chores and are eager to participate in your family’s leisure activities. Your ASSE student doesn’t expect red-carpet treatment; he or she wants to learn about our country by living like a “native” rather than as a guest. And as your student experiences and responds to the new surroundings and day-to-day activities of your family and community, you will find a new way of looking at those things you often considered commonplace. Your family will also receive a fascinating cultural education about everyday life in your student’s home country. In fact, the rewards are far-reaching — your student’s classmates, instructors and entire community will be enriched by interacting with your ASSE student.
Each year, ASSE and its affiliates place several thousand students, ages 15 to 18, in host families like yours throughout the world. ASSE International Student Exchange Programs invites you and your family to join all the families in our country and throughout the world in the memorable and valued cultural experience.
