Host families urgently needed
Okanagan College urgently needs homestay families to support international students coming to Revelstoke for the new Tourism Management Diploma program this September. Enrich your family with a different culture as you help students experience Revelstoke. Host families are paid $800 per month for providing a student with a private bedroom, food for three meals a day, and healthy snacks. For those with space, host families can welcome more than one student. Homestays are critical to the program’s success and a minimum of 15 spots are needed by June 14, 2019. Talk to us today about becoming a host family. To sign up, call 250-862-5443 or visit Okanagan.bc.ca/hostfamily
