Are you a bilingual Canadian student looking for a unique work experience abroad? The Juno Beach Centre’s Student Guide Program is a wonderful opportunity for young Canadians to experience life in Normandy, France while sharing Canada’s rich military history with visitors from all over the world.
We’re currently recruiting for our 2016 Student Guide Team. The first deadline is October 8!
Check out what our some of our past guides had to say about their time at the JBC:
Not only did I have the greatest work experience, but I also made lifelong friends at Juno. Here we are, my team and me after a day at work enjoying one of many beautiful Juno Beach sunsets.— Isabelle Jeaurond
My experience at the Juno Beach Centre has been nothing short of amazing. The experiences I have lived here, such as doing a special tour on almost 6km of Juno Beach, have given me skills that I will be using for the rest of my life. — Alexandra Daigle
The time I spent as a student guide at the Juno Beach Centre was truly unparalleled: being able to share Canada’s D-Day and Battle of Normandy story with visitors from all over the world was one of the most rewarding experiences I have had. The connections I formed as a guide are among the most memorable and meaningful to me, whether they were made over the course of months or a single afternoon. The guide program provides students with a unique opportunity to both grow personally and contribute to Canada’s collective memory; it is an opportunity I am extremely grateful to have had. – Emily Young
