Join the many YRDSB students and families who have participated in the World Classroom Program since it began in 2005. This is a one-way exchange where international students live and learn with a buddy matched closely to their age and grade.
Since it began local teachers, students and their families have had the opportunity to learn about another country and culture and make life-long friendships by hosting an international student in their schools and homes.
Host families receive $250 per week to cover the cost of hosting a visiting student.
We are expecting a group from China this school year and are looking for:
• a 6-week commitment (April 18 to May 27, 2017) with arrival likely on Monday April 17 (East Long Weekend holiday Monday)
• boys and girls in grades 7 & 8
