Nina Busquaert of ASSE Intâ€™l (International Student Exchange Programs), Nonprofit ID 95-3034133, sent a letter to TMO to inform the community that ASSE is â€œnow accepting applications from host families for the 2009/2010 academic year. By hosting a foreign exchange student from Europe, Asia, North and South America, Australia, New Zealand and South Africa, you provide a rewarding opportunity to a special teenager. These personable and academically select exchange stuents are bright, curious and anxious to learn about this country through living as part of a family, attending high school and sharing their own culture and language with their newly adopted host family….
â€œHost families provide room and board and guidance for their new son or daughter while experiencing the joy of watching a child grow academically and culturally. each exchange student expects to bear his or her share of the household responsibilities as well as be included in normal family activities. When sharing your home with a student from another culture, your lives are enriched forever by your new lifelong friendship!â€
