Dear Parents and Guardians,
YES Canada student exchange is seeking families to host international secondary school students from countries around the world who are scheduled to attend schools in the Near North District School Board this fall. We are welcoming students from Argentina, Belgium, Chile, Denmark, France and Japan for durations ranging from two months to the full school year.
Host families are responsible for providing three meals a day in a safe and nurturing environment. Host families are compensated with a monthly stipend of $500.
These international students have planned their study abroad program months in advance and are excited to learn more about the exchange country’s culture and language.
Students are required to comply with all Government of Canada and Public Health requirements during COVID-19 including any testing and quarantine requirements both prior to departure and upon arrival in Canada. Additionally, protocols and expectations regarding COVID-19 safety are provided to both the student and host family throughout the process – including prior to arrival and throughout the program. The YES Canada team are available to answer questions and provide information.
These exchanges are important as they connect individuals and cultures and remind us of the common interests, passions and goals. It is also a great way to establish life-long friendships and connections.
If you are interested in hosting an international secondary school student or would like to learn more about YES Canada’s homestay program, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org or call 416-623-6220 ext. 403.
