Program Description:

The Toronto District School Board (TDSB) welcomes students from all over the world to join us this summer for the International Youth Summer Program. International students aged 12 to 17 will experience an unforgettable journey exploring Canadian culture firsthand, connecting with friends from around the world, and discovering Toronto, Canada’s largest and most vibrant city.

As Canada's largest and most diverse public school board, we offer an immersive learning experience, providing a unique and engaging summer experience full of fun, learning, and adventure – all in one of the most highly-rated countries in the world.

This program prepares international students to act in leadership roles and as part of a team. Students will develop skills in communication, collaboration, teamwork, and problem solving; and apply those skills to real life situations. In this character-building program the students will learn by applying 21st century global competencies and improving their English language skills.
