For more information on becoming a host family, or a student interested in an exchange program abroad, please email me!  I am happy to say that Rainbow Families parents have hosted numerous students.  I look forward to talking with you about it!

I can also connect any of you interested in becoming host families from all over the country.

The history of ASSE goes back to 1938 when the Swedish Ministry of Education instituted an exchange program for Swedish and German students. In the post World War II era, this was expanded to include Great Britain, France, Spain, and Switzerland and later the United States, where ASSE was established in 1976, by the Swedish Government, as the American Scandinavian Student Exchange. Soon Denmark, Norway and Finland elected to participate.

Since then, the program has grown to include:
Argentina Australia Brazil Canada China Czech Republic Denmark Estonia Finland France Germany Great Britain Italy Japan Mexico Moldova Mongolia Netherlands New Zealand Norway Poland Portugal Romania Russia Slovakia South Africa South Korea Spain Sweden Switzerland Taiwan Thailand Turkey Ukraine and the USA
