June 22, 2005 -
St. Charles College is once again involved in the YMCA Youth Exchange Program. The school’s students have been twinned with a group from the Labrador Straits in Labrador. Students from Labrador will be in Sudbury from June 26 to July 1, 2005 to visit Sudbury and take in some of the great sites our city has to offer.|
The students from St. Charles College will be visiting Labrador
from August 22 to August 29, 2005 in return as part of the exchange
program. In addition, students from St. Charles College and Labrador
Straits are invited to a luncheon on June 30, 2005 at Respect is Burning on Durham Street. The luncheon will be held from 11:30 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. and will be hosted by Robert Gregorini, the owner and chef of Respect is Burning. Mr. Gregorini is offering the meal to the students at no charge as a way to give back to the community and to his former highschool as he is a graduate of St. Charles College.
After the luncheon the group will depart for Anderson Farm.
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.
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.
