Summer Work Student Exchange

About Summer Work Student Exchange

The YMCA Summer Work / Student Exchange is a national exchange program offering opportunities for youth to personally develop and to improve their second language skills, while gaining important paid employment experience. The exchange lasts for 6 weeks; from late June until mid August. Youth are twinned with a community in another province where the – more... other official language predominates, to deepen their cultural and language experiences through immersion. Youth will be hosted by a family in their twin community, supported by a Local Coordinator and, will be also be provided with an appropriate employment placement. To support participants, field staff will be hired and trained to ensure that participants can access a local support network of YMCA staff and peers. These staff members contribute largely to this enriching experience by planning and implementing a diverse program for participants during evenings and week-ends and being a positive adult mentor. – less
