ASSE was initially founded by the Swedish Parliament in 1938 to facilitate exchanges between Germany and Sweden. ASSE has since evolved and expanded in size and scope. Incorporated in the USA in 1976 as a public benefit, non-profit, high school student exchange program, ASSE maintains a network of over 1200 volunteer representatives in 41 countries in Europe, Asia/Pacific, the Americas, and Africa and accomodates over 10,000 students annually in its various programs.
ASSE's primary goal is to contribute to international understanding through exchange programs which enable students to learn other languages and about other cultures through active participation in family, school and community life.
