Victoria Local Forum 2016: the youth engaged with and for their community!
For the first time on Thursday, May 26th 2016, 100 students from the Greater Victoria, Sooke and Saanich, in grades 10 to 12 from either the Francophone program or immersion programs who speak French as a first or second language, came together at the University of Victoria (UVic) for a day celebrating community engagement.

We were so pleased to welcome Casey Edmunds as our guest speaker this year! Casey’s journey begins in Montreal, pass through Victoria and stops in Alberta. This is at the Victor- Brodeur’s school in Victoria that he got his bilingual diploma and then continue his studies in French at the Campus Saint -Jean . These are the many activities of the CJFCB and FJCF who encouraged him to continue his studies in French. It was during his stay in Alberta that he started getting involved more in the community , whether through music , dance, and more recently for the youth. He holds the position of Executive director of Francophonie jeunesse de l’Alberta for a year now.
The Francophone community gathered to inform the youth of their opportunities in French (volunteering, sports and cultural activities, scholarships, postsecondary studies…). 16 organizations were actually there!
We had 2 youth on the organizing committee who worked hard to organize a wonderful and unique event!
