CPF-SK’s youth activities are truly the heart of our programming. They are designed exclusively for French-second-language learning in order for students to increase their participation levels in activities, which will allow them to use their French outside the classroom. Participation in such extra-curricular activities plays an important role in:

  • Increasing the retention level of language skills
  • Increasing the variety of vocabulary
  • Reducing attrition levels in FSL programs
  • Providing students with a better understanding of the opportunities available to them if they developed their French-language skills.

By increasing the number of extra-curricular activities for youth where French-language is used and French culture is highlighted, young people will have a better understanding of the value of linguistic duality in Canada and an increased appreciation of the French-language in understanding its cultural context in Saskatchewan and elsewhere in Canada.

Its main purpose is to engage the children at this important age and encourage them to continue their French-Second-Language studies.
