 SEVEC: Society for Educational Visits and Exchanges in Canada

Canada is a cultural mosaic, rich in regional diversity. By exploring another community, youth from the ages of 12 – 17, have the opportunity to learn a second language, develop cultural awareness, break down social barriers and develop leadership skills. For 75 years, SEVEC has been providing Canadian youth with an opportunity to learn about their country outside the classroom through Youth Exchanges Canada.  This enriching educational exchange program enhances learning and provides participants with an experience that lasts a lifetime. Travel is free! Costs are funded by the Department of Canadian Heritage.

Summer Work Student Exchange

“The Summer Work Student Exchange program is a summer work program that runs for six weeks (from late June 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. 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 (postsecondary students) supervise the students participating in the program, and run a program of activities.”
