ASSE International Exchange
ASSE International Exchange has students from all over the world who want to learn about American cultural, right here at home with you in south west Michigan! I myself have been an exchange student and lived with a host family, and it was one of the most exciting and educational experiences of my life! We are branching out in the Kalamazoo and Portage area looking for families who want to share not only their homes, but truly their lives and experiences with an international student. These students themselves are eager to share their lives and stories with you!
Imagine sitting down to dinner with your exchange student and enjoying a home cooked meal from Germany, while they tell stories of the first time their mother made this for them.
Imagine taking them to one of Kalamazoo fantastic art galleries and sharing local art they could only see here in Kalamazoo; one in a life time opportunity to experience the beauty that is Art Hop of downtown Kalamazoo!
Imagine taking them out to see Lake Michigan, and watching their eyes grow as they see the beautiful lake is like looking over the ocean.
These students can not come over to the USA without host families, you could be the family to make their dreams come true! We offer a full year, or just a semester programs
As Area Representative, I will work closely with each family to find a student match, and work throughout their stay with excursions with all the students and families, and monthly check-ins.
I was lucky to find a host family and create this memories I will never forgot. Contact me, or check out the assehosts.com website to get a taste of the wonderful semester or year that is about to come!
