Building authentic, sustainable relationships with youth and community partners
Hart House forges relationships with local high schools, community agencies, on-campus access programs, and initiatives focused on youth groups and students under-represented at the University of Toronto.
By having access to programs, members of underrepresented groups can experience campus life first-hand. Indigenous, racialized and LGBTQ youth can see a place for themselves on campus and may consider post-secondary education when previously, it might not have been an option. Hart House develops these youth-centred programs with youth participants and community and campus partners.
