International Youth Summer Program - Summer 2024

Summer 2023 was a memorable time for international students who joined us in our International Youth Summer Program. They shared their stories of learning, exploring, and making new friends in a diverse and welcoming environment.

Program Description:

Join us for an unforgettable experience with the Toronto District School Board (TDSB)!

Designed for students aged 12 to 17 from around the globe, our program promises an enriching adventure exploring Canadian culture in the heart of Toronto, Canada's most vibrant city.

As the largest and most diverse public school board in Canada, TDSB prides itself on offering a unique summer experience full of fun, learning, and exploration.

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 21 st century global competencies and improving their English language skills.
