    I got the bug. I loved working in an educational setting, and I particularly enjoyed working with youth.


    What is Odyssey?

    Inspire youth to practice their English-speaking skills and share your culture while getting paid! That’s Odyssey!

    Embark on this nine-month Odyssey and you will:

    • earn paid work experience in a classroom setting (approximately $25 per hour).
    • discover whether the field of education is right for you.
    • experience francophone culture and way of life in New Brunswick or Quebec.
    • develop new skills and improve your French-speaking skills.

    It’s really rewarding seeing all these young people who want to spend time with you, who speak French to you, and who admire you!

    As a language assistant, you will work in a classroom setting with teachers, using games and activities to help students learn and improve English.
