Summer Work Student Exchange
This exchange offers students, aged 16 to 17 and returning to school in September, the opportunity to learn and apply their knowledge of Canada’s second official language outside of the classroom. Our program provides participants with an exceptional opportunity to improve their second language skills via immersion in a work and family environment. During their six week stay in the host community, students will live with the family of the student with whom they have been paired and will gain a greater understanding and appreciation of another culture. Coordinators (university students) are responsible for supervising participants and developing a program of cultural activities for their benefit.
Cost: The program covers transportation costs for participants to travel to and from their exchange destination and the costs for mandatary activities. Participants are responsible for their own personal expenses. Participants will be paid the minimum wage applicable in the province in which they are staying.
