Nonprofit seeking families to host exchange students

ASSE International Student Exchange Programs, in cooperation with local high schools, is looking for local families to host boys and girls between the ages of 15 to 18 from countries including Norway, Denmark, Spain, Italy, Japan and more.

ASSE students come with an enthusiasm to practice their English and experience American culture — food, sports, shopping and more. They also love to share their own culture with their 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, ASSE students have pocket money for personal expenses, along with full health, accident and liability insurance. ASSE students are academically selected into 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, call Dawn Terrizzi at 763-552-0073 or the ASSE Midwestern Regional Office at 1-800-736-1760 or go to to begin a host family application.
