Every year, participating schools and youth organizations send 10-30 youth (ages 12- 17) on exchange somewhere in Canada. On average, 4,500 youth and their chaperones per year are chosen, representing just under 200 groups. That’s hundreds of thousands of young Canadians who have benefited from a student exchange experience since we began over 80 years ago.

The exchanges are organized between groups of 10 to 30 young people. The reciprocal exchanges offer life-changing experiences: enabling young Canadians to build personal skills and self-confidence; form new friendships; deepen their knowledge of a second language, of other histories and cultures, and inspire them to become more actively engaged in their communities.
