Youth Access

Hart House works with youth from local communities and organizations and directly engages them in programming in the areas of dialogue, social justice, recreation and wellness. These experiences provide insight into university life and help build overall life skills.

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.

Hart House makes us feel as though we are part of something bigger … It gives us that life experience that we need before we go to university …There is a whole world out there that we never got to see, never got to have access to.

Youth Participant

The placement helped me recognize and reflect on my own privilege as a U of T student, and how I can use the opportunities available to me to make more equitable spaces for under-served communities.
