Youth Amplified

Higher education can change lives…when it is accessible for all.

 

Background

Youth Amplified logoYouth Amplified is a suite of community-focused initiatives rooted in Sheridan’s mission to unlock the transformative power of education – and help young people in our local campus-communities forge a path to postsecondary studies.

In partnership with youth-serving organizations across Halton and Peel, the programs under the Youth Amplified banner seek to intentionally forge pathways to postsecondary for equity-deserving groups. They offer youth mentorship, connections to financial aid and resources, exposure and hands-on experiences with our disciplines of strength, guidance through the postsecondary application process, a window into student life, and more.

Youth Amplified delivers on the aspirations in Sheridan’s Strategic Plan to contribute meaningfully to the needs of our local communities across Peel and Halton Regions.

By connecting deeply and listening to the needs of our local community partners and youth, we can strengthen access to postsecondary education together.

Partnerships

The Youth Amplified strategy seeks to collaborate with community-based youth organizations in Peel and Halton that align with our strategy’s purpose and approach to giving sightline and eliminating barriers to postsecondary education – ultimately supporting and empowering all youth to reach their full potential.

This can take on several formats:

  • Co-designing new initiatives together
  • Bringing content-specific workshops to your existing programs/youth groups

If you are a local youth-serving organization interested in collaborating with us, please fill out the following form to get started. We look forward to connecting with you!
