Being a Heart to Heart host is a wonderful experience for both participants and hosts alike! From hosting you can expect to get to know our Heart to Heart participants in a more personal and meaningful way. Besides providing a safe and comfortable place to sleep while in Toronto, we expect our hosts to transport participants to and from the specified drop-off locations each day. As well, hosts provide a breakfast and a packed lunch to participants every day while in Toronto, and dinner on two to three free-evenings. Finally, we ask that hosts make an effort to provide an enjoyable experience for our participants on free evenings. This might include a trip into the city to do some site-seeing and activities together, or it might mean going out for dinner! Our participants greatly appreciate this time spent together and the opportunity to explore the local culture. While not required, we also hope that you will choose to stay in touch after the program ends to continue connecting with the participants you host.
If selected, hosts will be asked to attend a training session prior to camp where you will have the opportunity to meet other hosts, learn more about what happens at camp, and learn how to support your participants through the final stage of the program.
