Express Your Potential
The program “Express your potential!” offers a unique opportunity for 10 students from various Aboriginal Nations of Canada to come live a linguistic and cultural experience at our French school during the summer program. The main goal of this project is not only to improve their French language skills, but also to develop learning strategies which are necessary to pursue post-secondary studies.
Benefiting from the presence of 185 participants of the same age group from across Canada and around the world, the project “Express your potential!” is a unique opportunity to promote indigenous culture and to bring people closer together.
