The Odyssey Language Assistant Program is a paid, professional work experience that involves working with students as a Language Assistant in a school setting for nine months. Participants can earn over $20 an hour while gaining valuable work experience in a classroom setting! Under the supervision of the teacher, Language Assistants will prepare classroom activities that focus on learning language and culture, encourage students to participate in oral communication activities, motivate students to learn the targeted language (French) and lead and participate in cultural activities. Prairie Valley School Division has been approved for one language assistant at École White City School for the 2017-2018 school year, however, the Odyssey program is currently experiencing a shortage of French-speaking applicants in Saskatchewan. If you are interested in this opportunity, please visit the Odyssey program website for eligibility requirements and application procedures.
