St. Charles College to Host Visitors from Labrador

April 8, 2004 - Twenty-six youth from St. Charles College will be hosting 26 students from Mountain Field Academy in Forteau, Labrador from April 9 to April 15, 2004 as part of their involvement in YMCA Youth Exchanges Canada, a program of the YMCA of Greater Toronto. YMCA Youth Exchanges Canada promotes cross-cultural awareness and a sense of national identity among Canadian youth aged 12 to 18. Travel costs are funded by the Government of Canada through Exchanges Canada.

The students from St. Charles College and Mountain Field Academy will be participating in activities at Dynamic Earth and Path of Discovery on April 10, Science North’s sunset to sunrise tour on April 11, YMCA on April 12, Manitoulin Island on April 13, and Anderson Farm and Capreol Rail Museum on April 14. In addition, the Boy Scouts of Canada have volunteered their time and camp at Windy Lake for an orienteering session on April 9 in the morning.

YMCA Youth Exchanges Canada sponsors exchanges between two groups of equal size in different communities. Each group hosts the other. During their stay in Sudbury, the youth will live with the families of their twin group. Since 1976, thousands of young people have experienced the cultural and geographic diversity of Canada through participation in YMCA Youth Exchanges.
