Letter: Students in urgent need of a host families

Opportunity still exists for local families to host international students.

To the editor:

ASSE Student Exchange Program, a highly respected, non profit, public benefit organization, is seeking local host families for high school boys and girls from France, Thailand, Italy, Mexico and Taiwan.

Students are already awaiting word on their host family for the 2013-2014 academic school year. Host families provide room, board, and guidance for a teenager living thousands of miles from home. Couples, single parents, and families with and without children in the home are all encouraged to apply.

The exchange students arrive from their home country shortly before the 2013/14 school year begins and each ASSE student is fully insured, brings his/her own personal spending money and expects to bear his/her share of household responsibilities, as well as being included in normal family activities and lifestyles.

If you are interested in opening your home and sharing your family life with a young person from abroad, please call me, Marion Kozub at 204-376-2011 or 1-855-886-8381 (toll free). Please also visit our websitewww.asse.com

ASSE is a nonprofit, tax-exempt, public benefit organization. ASSE is officially designated as an exchange visitor program by the United States Department of State and is fully listed with the Council Of Standards On International Educational Travel (CSIET).
