Open the world to your family! A variety of international hosting opportunities come up each year for visiting international students to the DSBN. Host families provide a welcoming home and room and board for visiting international students aged 10-18 years.

Benefits to you: 

  • You and your children will learn about another culture
  • You and your children will make lasting friendships with families from another country
  • You will experience the joy of sharing your home and what Niagara has to offer visitors
  • You will join a growing community of DSBN/Niagara families who enjoy being hosts
  • You will receive compensation

 Ideal families would: 

  • Have an interest in learning about a student from another culture
  • Speak English as a rule in the home and support the international student in learning English
  • Be able to provide room and board for the student
  • Be willing and able to include the student in family activities/events

The DSBN works closely with the following Student Support Service Providers in Niagara who are regularly providing services to DSBN international students. 

Contact any of these organizations directly for more information about becoming a host family either on a long-term or short-term basis.
