Host a Student Through an Historic Exchange
By Courier Staff Writer
Be part of the solution! ASSE International is now looking for American families to host high school students from countries of the former Soviet Union. All these students have received scholarships through the US State Department sponsored Future Leaders Exchange Program (FLEX) and will spend an academic year in the U.S. This historic program seeks to foster democracy and values inherent in a free market economy. Your support of these students and this program reinforces the United States’ commitment to education and opportunity.
ASSE International is currently seeking host families for well-qualified and well-screened students coming from Russia, Ukraine, Moldova, Belarus, Armenia, Azerbaijan, Georgia, Kazakhstan, Kyrgyzstan, Turkmenistan, Uzbekistan, Tajikistan. By living with local host families and attending local high schools, FLEX scholarship students acquire an understanding of American values, build on leadership skills and learn about the important elements of American civil society. Upon returning home, FLEX scholarship students will work together to share what they have learned while in America and make a difference in their home countries.
To become a host family or find out more about ASSE and the FLEX Program, call 1-800-733-2773. ASSE looks forward to welcoming you to the ranks of host families nationwide contributing to world peace—one child at a time!
