The Shikaoi Exchange Long Stay Volunteer Program was developed in 2015 as an adult program for Stony Plain residents. The program’s goal focuses on sharing the knowledge, skills and experiences that each unique participant brings with them. Immersed in the community of Shikaoi for up to 80 days, the program is an excellent way to further deepen the sister town relationship that was established in 1985.   

Participants are offered free accommodation at the S.S House, a housing facility located in the Town core that was built specifically for the Program. The Town of Shikaoi will also provide a travel grant that covers a portion of the participant’s travel expenses.

Volunteer activities include (but are not limited to) kindergarten and nursery school visits, participation at the English Conversation Circle and the hosting of pot-luck parties at S.S House.
