The Harriet Tubman Institute for Research on the Global Migrations of African Peoples at York University invites youth ages 14 to 18 or Grade 9 to Grade 12 to participate in its fifth annual Student Summer Program.
Youth will participate in daily activities – art, dance, creative writing, sport, storytelling, graffiti, music, workshops, trips and classes – that will give them an overview of the contributions of African Peoples and cultures to the historical development of the world. Experienced educators, facilitators, volunteers and students from York University will deliver all the sessions.
The program will run from July 7 to 18, from about 9am to 3:30pm each day, at the Archives of Ontario at York University’s Keele campus.
There will be at no cost to the youth selected to participate, except for a $20 registration fee. There are about 30 spaces available. Meals (breakfast and lunch) as well as transportation (bus tickets) will be provided.
The youth will have the opportunity to accumulate community hours and an official certificate from the Harriet Tubman Institute at York University will be awarded to students upon completion of the program.
