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.
This program is open to all students from grades 6-10!
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 are thrilled to hear that Christine is continuing as a teacher with the book club as she has been wonderful and makes the class both fun and engaging but also is great at keeping the kids focused when they need to be. Lauren enjoys her class so very much as does her friend that we referred to the program. I don’t have to remind Lauren to log in as she looks forward to the sessions and learning every day.”
