Teen Meets World

Empowering The Youth With Online French Classes!

(English)

What We Do

Teens, more than ever before, are looking for ways to connect and get involved. And if they are in French immersion, they need the opportunity to exchange in French. This is where we come in!

Our team has developed an amazing line-up of virtual programs and workshops to help teens connect with teens, continue to enrich their French and develop new skills that will prepare them for the adult world.

Our program will help them develop skills such as resume building, maintaining mental health, financial literacy, finding your passion, and more. Through workshops and activities (all held in French!), this program will positively contribute to the students’ leadership development and more.

Programs include weekly clubs as well as one-time workshops. Check out our line-ups!

Who?

This program is open to all students from grades 6-10!

Where? 

Our French virtual camps will come to your house via the well-known Zoom platform. By now, most children have grown accustomed to connecting virtually with their schools or our own programming. “Zooming” has become a verb! Our team has invested time and effort into becoming well acquainted with this platform and we are ready to take on the virtual world!

We can’t wait to work with the campers and develop their leadership skills!
