Key Learning Objectives
The YMCA Youth Exchanges Canada Program provides an opportunity for diverse groups of youth to learn in a non-formal way.
Group leaders are asked to work with youth and together establish learning objectives.
Learning objectives should reflect the interests of the youth, the realities of the groups' home community and the objectives of the YMCA Youth Exchanges Canada Program.
Groups should spend time discussing and plannng for many activities and ways that these objectives can be achieved.
The aspect of developing the program plan presents a unique opportunity to ensure that participants are committed and have ownership over the program
