The International Student Program for School District 73 is looking for families to host International students.  The students will attend secondary schools in Kamloops and will stay for 1 or 2 semesters starting September 2018.  Our host families are asked to provide a welcoming home, food and a positive English speaking environment.  The compensation is $825 per month.  If you and your family, or your friends, feel you may enjoy this International experience, please go to http://www.ispcanada.ca/become-a-host-family.html. Here you will find information about being a host family and also guide to applying to our program.


Also I have a few kids coming here from Colombia for Oct-Nov for an 8 week cultural experience. They are in grades 5-6: 3 grade 5 boys and 2 grade 6 boys. They may be quite low in their English abilities, but they are here for an immersion opportunity - not academic.
