The YMCA Summer Work Student Exchange is a six-week summer program for 16- and 17-year-old youth.
In Newfoundland, each English-speaking participant is matched with a French-speaking participant from Québec, and the two youth are hosted in each other’s homes (in situations where a participant’s family is unable to host, the YMCA seeks alternate hosts).
Youth are also provided with a full-time summer job in the non-profit or public sector.
During weekends and some evenings, the youth will join their Local Coordinator in group activities to explore their new community and form lasting friendships. All participants, families, and employers will receive support from a YMCA Local Coordinator.
We are currently recruiting student participants, volunteers and host families.
