Nonprofit needs Carson City families to host foreign students
The nonprofit ASSE International Student Exchange Programs is looking for local families to host students age 15-18 from a variety of countries, including Norway, Denmark, Spain, Italy and Japan.
ASSE students are hoping to experience American culture and practice their English language skills while also sharing their own culture and language with their host families.
Host families welcome students into their family, not as guests, but as family members. The exchange students have pocket money for personal expenses and full health, accident and liability insurance. ASSE students are selected based on academics and personality, and host families can choose their student from a wide variety of backgrounds, countries and personal interests.
To host a student, call 1-800-733-2773, or go to http://www.host.asse.com.
