Ceri Bowles, Homestay CoordinatorBritish Columbia, Sunshine Coast
We moved to the Sunshine Coast from West Vancouver 23 years ago because we loved the small town lifestyle but were still close to family and the city. 11 years ago we hosted our first student from Japan as an exchange and our oldest daughter went to Japan and lived with her family. It was the beginning of very rewarding and fun experience for our two daughters and ourselves. We have developed long lasting friendships with students we have had stay with us. Many have come back to visit with their families and friends.
I was excited to be able to take on the position of Homestay Coordinator so I can work to help homestay families and students have the same positive experience that hosting has been for my family.‹ Back
