You’re invited to host a student from Gdynia


Got a spare room? Enjoy mentoring young adults?
Maciej, Anna, Piotr, and Kacper are looking forward to their stay in Seattle before they head to Washington Business Week.

SGSCA invites you to host one of our 2015 Gdynia exchange students!
Host families needed for July 19-25

Hosting means sharing your culture and hospitality with one of our students from Gdynia.
We encourage you to show them some of the sites around Seattle.

Host families provide the student with room and board, and are expected to treat their student as a member of a family, not as a guest. If you have chores or simple tasks in your households let them be a part of it too.

Students cover 
their own travel costs, health insurance, school expenses, cell phone, and spending money. Students are encouraged to practice their English language skills.

If you have children already they will build wonderful relationships with their new “sibiling”. You will have a chance to gain a whole new family in a whole other country!

The sister city association takes care of all transportation arrangements
to and from the airport, and to and from Ellensburg.

SGSCA Picnic 2014




It was the perfect Seattle day for a picnic on Alki….beautiful blue skies, sunny and breezy. SGSCA members and friends gathered for an afternoon of good food, fun conversation and buggy rides! Special guests were our three students from Gdynia who attended Washington Business Week. WBW is one of our favorite ongoing projects between Seattle and Gdynia. Special thanks to our main ‘chef’ Glen who kept the coals burning for our hot dogs and polish sausage. Not to mention the wonderful bigos.

Experiencing Seattle Center

Our exchange student from Gdansk joined me for a quick photo shoot through Seattle Center during her recent stay in Seattle. The Space Needle is always a big attraction but I have to admit she just smiled and laughed when I told her about the ‘french fry’ wall. I think she had fun, don’t you?
