What is the FNJA?
The National Ambassador Youth Forum is a free program involving :
- 30 Grade 10 and Grade 11 bilingual students from across Canada, enrolled in French programs (Core French, Extended French, French Immersion, or Francophone schools)
- 5 days of fun, interactive workshops and activities centered on the significance of bilingualism
- 1 different Canadian city each year
All of this goes into training students to become French for the Future ambassadors!
The ambassadors’ mission is to promote the French language and official bilingualism in their schools throughout the year following the FNJA by organizing activities related to French.
This program is free for participants: all expenses including travel, accommodation, and food are covered by the French for the Future!
The 2019 edition will take place in Victoria, B-C, from August 11 to 16, 2019.
We thank the Department of French of the University of Victoria for receiving us!
