Youth development experts agree that young people need a variety of experiences in their lives to grow into healthy adults. We provide this to some of our underprivileged students by sending them to summer camp in the United States!
We select the students based on merit, as well as character. This ensures that they are in the best position to make the most of the fantastic opportunity.
Our Exchange Program gives them the chance to experience full English immersion while staying in a safe and nurturing environment, a far cry from where they grew up. For two weeks, these underprivileged teenagers attend Camp Hazen YMCA, before spending a week in a homestay. Needless to say, the positive impact on them is immeasurable.
Indeed, the confidence of previous participants skyrocketed. Their English level improved dramatically and they developed invaluable social and life skills. Best of all, our Exchange Program has helped them to cultivate a positive vision of the future.
This program relies on the generous help of our partners at Brayce. Without their sponsorship, we would not be able to give these life-changing opportunities to our students.
