CNC is seeking active families in Prince George to host South Korean exchange students for three weeks starting next month.
The Korean Cultural Exchange Hosting Program is a three-week homestay program during the last two weeks of June and the first week of July. The 12 students are health sciences students studying dentistry and nursing, among others, from Deagu Health College in South Korea.
“These are professional students between the ages of 20 and 25 who will be doing their practicums in our local hospitals and clinics,” said Sabreena MacElheron, homestay co-ordinator for CNC’s International Education Centre. “We encourage applications from families that want to experience a new culture through interacting with their student. Those interactions involve family barbecues, trips to parks, lakes or local areas of interest.”
While the Korean students will attend CNC during the day, host families are also expected to attend specific events organized by the college and provide assistance to their student with transportation to and from CNC as required.
Those who are interested can fill out an application form, where they’ll provide information about their family, work and home life, and areas of interest. They also must fill out an RCMP Criminal Record Check form.

This is the sixth year CNC has been involved in the Korean Cultural Exchange Hosting Program based on its long-standing relationship with Deagu Health College.
