Host families sought for exchange students
ASSE International Student Exchange Programs is looking for local families to host exchange students next school year. According to a press release, the students are between the ages of 15 and 18 and come from countries such as Norway, Denmark, Spain, Italy and Japan. Host families welcome the students into their homes and treat them "not as a guest, but as a family member, giving everyone involved a rich cultural experience." The students have money for personal expenses and are fully insured. For more information, or to volunteer to host a student, visit host.asse.com.
