I hope you are doing well during these challenging times. In some ways, the next few months will carry the greatest uncertainty. During the lockdown, it was clear - stay home and stay safe. Now, as international education programs and most of the economy begin to reopen, everything is more ambiguous.
This applies to homestay programs as well. Hosts, students and homestay staff are all trying to navigate the unknown. In this issue of the Homestay Times, we consider how to support hosts and students when they are together 24/7. Special thanks to Nami Bagirimvano of Tacoma Community College and Karlee Heath of Whatcom Community College for their contributions.
Here at ESQ Educational Services, we are doing our part by presenting our webinar series on reopening. The next session is of critical importance - how to manage risk with solid agreements with students, parents, homestay hosts and other key players.
The webinar on Agreements is being held this Friday at 1 pm Eastern. Please see below for details. This is the only time this session is being offered this year so don't miss out!
As always, please get in touch if you have any questions. Stay safe!
