Have you ever met an exchange student from another country or considered the possibility of hosting one? Host families are too modest to tell, but they are striving to make a difference, one student at a time, by sharing their daily lives, their homes, and the food on their table. One by one, they are answering the call to become 'ambassadors of America'.
Today there is no such thing as a typical host family. A warm, successful student/family bond does not depend on if there are same-age children in the home. In fact, it is not uncommon for young families, childless couples, empty-nesters and retirees to embrace the opportunity to share their lives. ASSE believes that when Americans embrace the world's youth, we invite a more promising future for the world. All students come with their own spending money and have health insurance coverage.
