“Taking Flight” is the name of our guardianship program, through which we offer a variety of support services to Asian students who attend a school in Kelowna, B.C. From the initial pre-trip planning to graduation, we can be there every step of the way.
What is a guardian? A guardian not only acts as a legal representative on paper but also communicates with the teachers, assists in adjusting to school life, and takes care of small things throughout the child’s life in the overseas setting. In addition, some guardians – such as WLC – act as a bridge to communicate with parents in Korea. In the case of an unaccompanied minor (a child who comes without a parent), a guardian must be assigned to study in Canada.
As your child’s guardian, we can help with school and Visa applications, finding accommodations and their day-to-day needs, while helping deepen their English skills through ongoing coaching and mentorship. Our services include:

1- Be fluent in multiple languages
Language fluency is the most critical point. Consider the case of an unexpected accident. Suppose you need emergency measures or conversations with medical staff in the hospital. You will understand what we are saying.
A person who enjoys communication and communicates with the locals without hesitation will foster and strengthen the friendship opportunities for your child and make school life more enjoyable.
Having intimate knowledge of the area and a vast network of locals will make a massive difference in how much your child can enjoy the advantages of life in Canada. In addition, the challenges facing a young student living in Canada can be understood, empathized with, and problem-solved. Challenges originating from cultural differences MUST be effectively managed with the guidance and assistance of a well-experienced guardian to broaden the child’s understanding of other cultures.
The Taking Flight guardians have the unique experience of being:
Professionally qualified and experienced
4- Accessible and clear communication with Korean parents
WLC guardians have extensive experience in the education field. Additionally, they are very aware of the cultural differences between Korea and Canada. All of these factors will result in optimal child care.
