International Student Program

School District 73 Kamloops/Thompson

March 1, 2014

The School District 73 International Student Program is looking for good families to host international students attending our secondary schools. The families are asked to bring the student into their homes providing a private room, 3 meals plus snacks each day and a nurturing, English-speaking environment. These students attend short term programs, one semester or 1 year programs and sometimes stay until graduation.

We ask that the family include their student in family activities and look after their student as they would their own child. The compensation is $720 per month.

Currently, we are receiving some special requests for horse families that can give the student an opportunity to look after a horse, help around the yard and ride occasionally. If you, or any other families you know, would like to fill this need and would like to have the International Experience, please let us know. Thank you.
