ASSE Student Exchange Programs seeks host families for exchange students

ASSE Student Exchange Programs is looking for American families to host high school students from Eurasia, Germany and countries with significant Muslim population.

All these students have received scholarships through the U.S. State Department sponsored programs: Future Leaders Exchange Program (FLEX) Program, Congress Bundestag Youth Exchange Program and Kennedy Lugar Youth Exchange and Study Program, according to a press release.

These scholarship recipients will spend an academic year in the U.S. The U.S. State Department programs seek to foster democracy and values inherent in a free market economy.

Residents’ support of these students and programs reinforces, a release states, the country’s commitment to education and opportunity throughout the world.

ASSE is seeking host families for these students coming from various parts of the world including Latvia, Ukraine, Poland, Egypt, Jordan, Ghana and Germany.

By living with local host families and attending local high schools, these scholarship students acquire an understanding of American values and build on leadership skills.
