Port Alberni's sister city sending students for exchange in March.

The Port Alberni International Twinning Society is looking for homestay volunteers for four nights in late March and early April.

The society is looking for families interested in hosting one or two students and one male teacher. They will attend school or participate in activities during weekdays.

Deadline to apply is Feb. 15. Please contact Laurie Morphet at 250-724-4174 or lmorphet@sd70.bc.ca.
