Dear Parents and Guardians,
Student exchange company YES Canada, in partnership with Near North District School Board, is seeking families to host international secondary school students from Japan, Sweden, Italy and Australia in September 2023 who will study for three or 10 months.
Welcoming an international student to your home is a great way to learn about another country and culture, build lifelong relationships, and share your home, language and culture with a secondary school student. During their stay, students will live with a local family and experience daily life in Canada while developing their English language skills through this immersion experience.
Host families provide a home away from home for these secondary school students, providing a safe and nurturing environment, three meals per day and the opportunity to become a family member. Host families are compensated with a monthly stipend to offset the cost of hosting. Host families are supported by a local coordinator and YES Canada staff during their student’s stay.
If you are interested in hosting an international high school student or would like to learn more about YES Canada’s homestay program and the benefits of becoming a host, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org or call 416-623-6220 ext. 410.
