Mission Statement: 

American Scholastic Associates International (ASA) is dedicated to the promotion of world peace and understanding by bringing together foreign teens with volunteer US host families. Our programs allow students from more than 45 countries to become familiar with the American way of life by experiencing its schools, homes and communities. A sincere desire to embrace the "one world" philosophy, inquisitiveness about other cultures, and the ability to provide a loving home as well as room and board are the prerequisites to being a Host family.
