YMCA Student Summer Work Exchange Program


(3 or 6 WEEKS, SUMMER 2019)

The Program

YMCA Summer Work Student Exchange is a national youth exchange program for 16 and 17 years olds who wish to strengthen their second official language skills and gain valuable work experience.  For 6 weeks, in the summer (June 28th to August 12th), participants are matched with youth from Quebec and hosted in each other's homes.  They are given a full-time paid job in the non-profit sector and participate in group activities organized by a YMCA Local Coordinator during the weekend.

How You Can Help

Due to the reciprocal nature of the program, not all youth have the opportunity to participate because their family is unable to host a student in return.  Volunteer alternate hosts can support these youth by hosting on their behalf, and in that way, ensure that all members of the community have access to this great experience.  The YMCA is looking for alternate host families from June 28th - August 12th (6 weeks), and from July 20th - August 12th (3 weeks).

Get Involved

As a Volunteer Alternate host for the YMCA Summer Work Student Exchange, you will welcome a student into your home for the duration of the exchange.  You will provide a safe and healthy environment for the youth to strengthen their English skills while learning about your family and community.  The program offers opportunities for the Alternate Host to be involved in activities and events, to network with other hosts and families, and to benefit from the continuous support of a YMCA Local Coordinator.  Your involvement in the program ensures a youth is given the chance to experience a new language, a new community, and a new culture, all in an effort to build strong young people.
