HOMESTAY FAMILIES NEEDED FOR 2017-2018

Wed, 7 Jun, 2017

News item: Homestay families needed for 2017-2018

Can you provide a safe, welcoming and caring home environment for a 15 to 18-year-old international student? Edmonton Public Schools’ International Student Program partners with The Canada Homestay Network (CHN) to support international students studying in our schools.

BECOMING A HOMESTAY FAMILY

Welcoming an international student can make a lasting impact on your family, your community and the student. By providing accommodations and three daily meals as a host family, you receive:

  • orientation and support from the CHN team and other experienced hosts
  • a chance to share cultural experiences 
  • an allowance to compensate for living costs
