HOST AN INTERNATIONAL STUDENT IN YOUR HOME

HOST AN INTERNATIONAL STUDENT IN YOUR HOME
The Nova Scotia International Student Program, through the Halifax Regional School Board, is
looking for families to host international students in their home. Our students come from many
different countries around the world, and stay a duration of 3, 5, to 10 months.
This is a wonderful opportunity to expose your family to another culture, and help a visiting
student adapt to our culture. Quite often the friendships developed from hosting an
international student, last a lifetime. Hosting an international student is a great way to show
school support, and add valuable diversity to our community.
There is 24/7 support from a local homestay coordinator throughout the hosting period, and
your family will receive a monthly stipend to help offset the cost of hosting a student. The Nova
Scotia International Student Program also holds monthly cultural events for the students, and
some events include invitations to host families. In addition, the NSISP holds an initial student
orientation to help the student with the adjustment into their new home, school, and
community.
If you are interested in the opportunity to host a student, and would like more information on
this wonderful experience, please contact, Alison Richardson arichardson@hrsb.ca or call
902-222-9886.
Sincerely,
Alison Richardson
