The York- TD Community Engagement Centre was happy to welcome and host 60 students from Elias Middle School

The York- TD Community Engagement Centre was happy to welcome and host 60 students from Elias Middle School on March 29th, 2017. It was a fun and busy day for all the students and teachers. The students were excited and engaged in different activities such as a York Scott Library tour and activities where they visited such areas as the archives, the sound and moving image library and the map collections.  They trekked to the Tait McKenzie Athletic Centre and had a chance to play basketball on the Lions court.  They had lunch in the Bergeron Centre and then split up for University tours with York student ambassadors. The final highlight was a debrief in an actual large lecture hall (yes, it is true, it was a highlight).  It was a great day, all the students were enthusiastic and eager to learn more of what University life is about, and how to get into University.  These kids were thinking ahead!

Thanks to Michael, Leneque and Ariella, our CEC Social Work Placement Students, Gowry our work study student, who organized the day; our York colleagues Amber, Amy, Gayathry, and Jaclyn who made the day so enriching; and thanks to the York University Retirees Association for their financial contribution.  Finally, thanks to Ms. Bailey and the Elias Middle School students and staff for envisioning the importance of such a day.
