We’re excited to be back to meeting in person for our homestay staff workshop! This will be two great days of professional learning, networking opportunities and sharing of ideas. People from across North America – and beyond – are invited to attend.

Your workshop registration includes two lunches, coffee breaks and a networking reception. This workshop will be held in downtown Vancouver.

Cost: Just $575 plus tax. Discounts available if you enroll more than one person from your organization.

The Homestay Staff Professional Development Workshop is only offered once in 2022, so don’t miss out! 


Here are some of the key topics we will be covering: 

  • Problem solving for hosts and students
  • Supporting students with mental health issues
  • Protect your program with airtight contracts
  • Food costs are soaring! Should you raise host compensation?
