The French program holds an annual service spring break trip to Montréal, Canada.
Case students who register for French 208 (1 credit) can work in a Francophone community center, homeless shelter or mission. Scholarships may be available.
Orientation meetings are held before the trip and a subsequent meeting is held, at which students present projects based on their experiences in Montréal.
Applications are available here or in the Department of Modern Languages and Literatures, Guilford 103. Please return them to the department.

Here are some quotes from past participants:
“Where else but in Montreal can you listen to an English rap song in a Chinese internet cafe with all the computer directions given in French?
“The 2004 spring break in Montreal course was an amazing opportunity. The combination of performing community service and being immersed in a different culture was both personally rewarding and educative. Also, the trip gave me the chance to meet fellow students who share an interest in the French language and in community service.”
“I am very glad that I had the opportunity to go on this trip and experience such a vibrant and cosmopolitan city as Montreal. Working with the less fortunate for a week was a humbling experience and I took back much more from it than I ever could have given.”
