Exciting news for youth this summer…
The Harriet Tubman Institute for Research on the Global Migrations of African Peoples at York University invites youth ages 14-18 (or grade 9 to grade 12) to participate in its Student Summer Programme.
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 programme will run from July 2-13th at York University and will be at no cost to the youth selected to participate: there are about 30 spaces available. Meals (breakfast and lunch), as well as transportation (bus tickets), will be provided.
The application form (attached) for the Harriet Tubman Student Summer Programme is available as of June 1st, 2012 on The Harriet Tubman Institute’s website: www.yorku.ca/tubman
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 on completion of the programme.
