We are excited to welcome students to Abbotsford BC to start the school year in September 2021. To prepare for the students’ arrival we are currently looking for host families who can host a student from September 2021 to March 2022. We prefer families that live close to the following schools: WJ Mouat, Abbotsford Secondary, Yale and Robert Bateman. We can only place 1 student per family.
We will also need families that can host students during the mandatory 2-week quarantine period after they arrive from Japan. Students should arrive mid-August (exact date to be confirmed) and will need to stay in the home for the 2 weeks. We can place 2-3 students in the home. Students must have a full bathroom that is separate from the family. Also, it would be nice if they could have access to a backyard (i.e. outdoors so they can breathe in that great Canadian air!!!). Students will be taking an on-line language course during this 2 week period so that they have something to do during the day, and they can work on improving their English skills.
If you are interested in hosting a student starting in September, or hosting students during the 2 week quarantine period, please contact your GPI NA Recruiter or fill out a Host Family Application.
