Mission Statement

ASSE was established in 1976 as the American Scandinavian Student Exchange by the Swedish Government to organize student exchange programs between Sweden and the United States. Soon Denmark, Norway and Finland elected to participate.

At present, ASSE works closely with the Canadian provincial education ministries and is approved by the Ministry of Education in New Zealand. ASSE maintains 38 offices in 31 countries and accommodates more than 30,000 high school age students and host families annually in its programs in the participating countries.

Exchange Students develop leadership skills, self-confidence and a greater understanding of the complexities of the world around them. Building friendships, taking responsibility for oneself, repsecting differences and tolerating the beliefs of others.

Description

ASSE is a Student Exchange program that helps 15 to 18 years old experience life in another country. To learn about that country, to learn the language, the culture and the people. ASSE also offers outbound opportunities for our American students to study abroad and also learn about another country, language, culture and people. Host Families are selected and screened, and open their homes to host these teens. Host Families are often just as interested in learning about the culture that their selected Teen is from and even learn some of the language.
