February 24, 2017
Campus Saint-Jean, University of Alberta
The Edmonton French for the Future Local Forum in collaboration with the Campus Saint-Jean of the University of Alberta, brought together 220 students from grades 10 to 12, from immersion and French as second-language schools in the Edmonton region and Northern Alberta on Friday February 24th, 2017 to prepare for a future in French.
The Local Forum, which offered a full-day program, enabled students to discover the numerous possibilities (education, travel and work) that are available to them in French. Interactive activities and workshops, an inspiring conference and a concert were scheduled for this event intended for youth who actively study French. Students had the opportunity to meet engaging mentors and bilingual professionals, to create links with students across the province, and to broaden their knowledge of a local and international francophonie—all of this, to fuel pride in the language that unites us!
