We welcome all past, current and potentially interested host families of both short term exchanges and visiting international students as well as multiyear international students to join our first host family social and info session. At this meeting we hope to create a space for host families to connect and share their experiences (the highlights and potential challenges), for prospective host families to gather more information about what is involved in becoming a host parent, and finally to start to build a community of support around the wonderful families that make it possible for KWS to extend enrollment to a wide array of diverse international students. Mandy Chan and Mary Barrett, two of our homestay coordinators will also be attending the meeting and will be delighted to answer questions about host family requirements, cultural differences.
Join us for an evening of dynamic exchange, sharing, delicious refreshments and community building. Please bring your curiosity, feedback, questions, concerns, and enthusiasm. Please RSVP to Elisabeth Burgess if you are able to attend at but if you choose to come at the last minute, do feel welcome to just stop by.
