Local families are being sought to serve as hosts of international exchange students.
Students between the ages of 15 and 18 from countries around the world receive the opportunity to learn English, experience American culture, and share their culture with the host families, according to ASSE International Student Exchange Programs.
The students have money for personal expenses and carry full health, accident, and liability insurance.
Information on being a host family is available by calling the ASSE Midwest Regional Office in Wayzata, Minn., at 800-736-1760.
