Richmond International Student Program
Interested in opening your home up for a rewarding experience?
The International Student Program allows overseas students to enter Grades 8 through 12 at selected secondary schools in Richmond. The program gives overseas students the opportunity to study alongside Canadian students in the BC public education system. As a Host Family, you will have an opportunity to welcome into your home, students from around the world. Your family will have a profound influence on the students’ study abroad experience. Both your family and the students you host will ideally gain a mutual understanding and respect for each other’s culture and world-view. In addition to economic remuneration, your reward will be the realization that your commitment to host international students will, in some small way, contribute to global understanding and world peace.
Each member of your family and your student will come to know each other in depth. Our Homestay program is the ideal setting for this type of experience.
If you are interested in learning more about our hosting program, please contact Karen York, Homestay Coordinator, International Student Program for information.
