Interested in hosting an International student?The Abbotsford school district is currently looking for host families that live in close proximity to the middle and secondary schools. We have a greater need for families that choose to host boys. We have students from all over the world and many of them would like to live in homes with other teens, although some prefer younger children or no children at all. If you think your family has the time and skill to care for a teen student from another country please contact our International Department. Homestay Coordinator Rose Mann at: email@example.com or 604-851-4585 for more information.
