Four host families still needed for Snoqualmie student exchange; Students from Peru, Korea arrive in January

An upcoming student exchange program, which will bring students from Korea and Peru to study at Mount Si High School, is short host families. Three boys from Gangjin, Korea and one boy from Chaclacayo, Peru still need homes for this program that is only one month away.

The Korean program will be from January 8 through February 3. The Peruvian program will be from January 17 through February 24.

During the exchange, the Snoqualmie Sister Cities Association (SSCA) will host field trips during their stay, such as Seattle tours, a Boeing VIP tour, a day in Olympia, and snow tubing. Transportation is provided by the SSCA and sometimes the host family. Weekends are free to be with host families. Exchange students submerge themselves into host family life. All exchange students will have insurance and spending money.

If you would like more information about being a student’s home away from home, please contact Tina McCollum at or 253-468-9744.
