Once again we are looking for families to participate in the Maple Leaf Exchange Program by opening up their homes to host students from Miki Town frominclusive (5 nights).
Miki Town Students will stay with local families and will participate in events and activities planned by the exchange program during their stay in Didsbury. A schedule of events and activities can be provided to any family interested in participating.
The program continues to be a success due to the participation of families in our community. It is a great opportunity for students in our community to learn about a new culture and language, showcase the Canadian lifestyle and to make a life-long relationship.
The program is always in need of additional host families looking to provide an exciting experience not only to a Japanese student, but also for their entire household.
There are no set prerequisites for a host family. Exchange students are happy to be integrated into your own daily life, whether that means going to hockey practice or shopping at the local grocery store. Many of the favorite memories of past students includes tobogganing, seeing farm animals and cooking on an open fire; it does not need to be an expensive or extravagant experience.
Ideally, host families will have children that attend Westglen School but this is not a requirement and families with children in any of the schools are welcome to apply!
If you are interested in participating, or just need further information, please contact the Town of Didsbury office at 403-335-3391 or the Town of Didsbury Legislative Department by email at firstname.lastname@example.org
