ASSE International Student Exchange Programs (ASSE) is looking for volunteers to serve as area representatives. ASSE provides academic year, semester and short-term exchange programs in the United States for high school-aged students from around the world. Students are 15-18 years old, have passed a series of academic and character requirements, and are anxiously awaiting an opportunity to embark on their American adventure.
Area representatives recruit and screen prospective host families, interview students to study abroad, and supervise the visiting exchange students in their community. Area representatives are reimbursed for their expenses and are provided with some travel opportunities.
ASSE's primary goal is to contribute to international understanding through exchange programs enabling students to learn about other languages and cultures through active participation in family, school, and community life.
For further information about ASSE or becoming an area representative, please contact their office at (800) 736-1760.
