Local families needed for cultural exchange students

By on March 22, 2011

KANELAND—ASSE International Student Exchange Programs 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 how to become involved with ASSE in your community, please contact Nancy Calegan at (815) 210-4429 or contact the Midwest Regional Office at 1-800-736-1760.
