What our participants are saying
I am so grateful for this experience. At work, I plan activities for children and spend the day teaching them about wildlife and plants. I am more comfortable speaking in English, and I have learned so much! I have also had a lot of opportunities to travel and spend time with other Explore students.
Maude St-Hilaire, Participante
What our employers are saying
We decided to participate in the program because we realized that with the financial support that came with it, we could support a student, but it would also allow us to support our own projects and programs with extra capacity.
