South Sound Chapter

2018-2019 South Sound Host Families with their hosted students


The South Sound Chapter was created to allow those who live in other parts of the GPS region a closer alternative to many orientations. Due to this being a chapter, it is supported by its own structure of volunteers who are still part of the GPS Team. Typically, the South Sound Chapter has roughly 10 students annually which creates a more inclusive experience for our exchange students.


South Sound manages students and host families from parts of the Olympic and Kitsap Peninsulas, Olympia, and areas encompassing the southern Puget Sound region.


The South Sound Chapter is managed by a smaller, more localized group of volunteers. While these volunteers are still part of the Greater Puget Sound Area Team, the operate relatively independent from the North Sound Chapter.
