This wonderful opportunity is about welcoming a delegate not only into your home but your family as well. Hosting does not require a change in your family routine, but the exact opposite; the students are here to be introduced to life in another part of the world and your everyday activities are bound to offer new and exciting experiences for these students! We require 6 more families for 2 weeks and 1 more family for the last week of the stay. We are also needing 2 host families for either a male or female chaperone for the 2nd week of the stay. If you have any questions about hosting, please contact Frances Krinke at 204 573-9987 or Leanne Sprung 204 761-2702
