Bring a French flair to your family for 8-10 weeks during Spring semester 2021!
Due to our partnerships with the French Embassy, Desert Sun Academy has applied for, interviewed and selected 2 French Language and Culture Assistants for the 2021 Spring semester (January - May). These Interns are recent college graduates in the field of education in France and are interested in pursuing education Internships through a one-year, J-1 Cultural Exchange visa here at DSA.

Our commitment is to provide them accommodations with a DSA host family so that they can experience an American family and school system. Their job is to share the French language and culture with the school community so it's really a win-win for both sides! We are therefore reaching out to our DSA amazing parents to offer this unique opportunity.

This is open to ALL DSA families! They both have submitted excellent introduction videos and we are so excited to welcome them to DSA!
