Hopkins Seeks Host Families For Sister City Students

Students from the Ukrainian city of Boryspil will visit Hopkins in the fall.

Hopkins’ friendship with its Ukrainian sister city will continue this fall when 18 students and two adult chaperones from Boryspil will visit the community.

The students will visit Hopkins schools, participate in civic leadership development opportunities and share their experiences with Minnesota youth, according to a city announcement.

Hopkins is looking for families to host the visitors. Families with students of a similar age who reside in the Hopkins school district are preferred. All students are proficient in English and interested in learning about Minnesota.

Those who are interested can contact Deb Sperling at or by e-mail at dsperling@hopkinsmn.com. She will put you in contact with the trip organizers.
