OSEF (Organisme de Séjours Educatifs Francophones) is a Belgian association founded in 1994 that promotes and facilitates linguistic and cultural exchanges between France, Belgium and Spain and all Canadian provinces. They offer a summer program as well as a school program, allowing students and families to choose a travel time that meets their needs.
Ombrosa School is a non-profit, K-12, multilingual private school based in Lyon (France). Ombrosa wishes to provide its students the opportunity to experience life abroad, not only to improve their language skills, but also to gain maturity and develop friendships that often last throughout the years. Last year, 28 students from Ombrosa had the chance to be hosted by Canadian families and to be schooled in Alberta, Canada. This program concerns students from Grade 6 to Grade 10. Although a return visit is not compulsory to take part in our program, Canadian students are welcome at Ombrosa school at a time that is convinient to their family.
