Interested in supporting youth see post-secondary education as a possibility in their future?

What are Access Initiatives?

Access Initiatives are opportunities created in partnership with local schools and community organizations to engage youth in seeing the value of Post-Secondary Education (PSE). As a volunteer, you will have the opportunity to help empower:

  • Youth to feel like PSE is an option they would like to pursue
  • Youth to feel like knowledge about PSE programs is available to them
  • Parents and families to feel like they can support their youth in PSE attainment.

Building Partnerships

To develop new initiatives, we encourage partners in the community to connect with us to explore ways we can work together to provide these opportunities at the University of Toronto Mississauga (UTM) and in the local community.

We invite schools, parents and families, local community organizations, and UTM community mentors and student groups to explore how we can work together.

If you are interested in partnering with the Centre for Student Engagment on Access Initiatives, please fill out this form.
