Ideas. Did you know that 13 to 17 year-olds in Zorra can be community leaders while enjoying the experience of living elsewhere? In France, Germany, Italy, Spain and Switzerland, there are teens galore looking to experience life in Zorra! ISE Ontario, a non-profit exchange organization, matches them up so that they can spend 9 weeks together in Ontario, and 9 weeks seeing Europe through the eyes of each other. ISE Ontario is a non-profit organization dedicated to providing extraordinary cultural and linguistic experiences. Residents of Zorra, no matter where they go to school, are eligible for $1200 from Oxford County if they promise to share ideas they have gathered while on exchange that will help with the Community Sustainability Plan. The renewal of this significant bursary means extra opportunities for at least one Zorra teen, extra chances for community groups to hear about brilliant ideas, and extra fun for all.
