Host Families Wanted

ASSE International Student Exchange is now accepting applications from host families for the 2004/2005 academic year.  By hosting a foreign exchange student from Europe, Asia, North and South America, Australia, New Zealand and South Africa, you provide a rewarding opportunity to a special teenager.  These personable and academically select exchange students are bright, curious and anxious to learn about this country through living as part of a family, attending high school and sharing their own culture and language with their newly adopted host family.  All students are well screened, insured, speak English and come with their own spending money. The students arrive from their home country shortly before school begins and return at the end of the school year


Host families provide room and board and guidance for their new son or daughter while experiencing the joy of watching a child grow academically and culturally.  Each exchange student expects to bear his or her share of the household responsibilities as well as be included in normal family activities.  When sharing your home with a student from another culture, your lives are enriched forever by your new lifelong friendship!


Couples, single parents and families without children are encouraged to apply.  For additional information about hosting an ASSE exchange student call Joyce McKenney at (207) 737-4666 or 1-800-677-2773.  Also, please visit our website at www.host.asse.com.  I am also looking for people that would like to join my team of area representatives.  Call me!
