Service Description: The Summer Work Student Exchange program is a summer work program that runs for six weeks (from beginning of July to mid-August) and is aimed at students 16 and 17 years of age. The program finds jobs for participants in communities in another province (for example Quebec). Communities are paired so that students work in their second official language. During their stay in the host community, each student lives with the family of the student with whom they have been paired. Coordinators (post-secondary students) supervise the students participating in the program, and run a program of activities.

The main factors that determine the program's success are the degree of effort and enthusiasm that the students display for living with another family, working at a new job and honing their official language skills.

Fees: Admission - $75 non-refundable participation fee upon acceptance into the porgram.
Eligibility - Population(s) Served: 16-17yr old youth - applicants; host families
Languages: English ; French
Area(s) Served:
Niagara Region
