Celebrate the launch of Youth Amplified with artist Wali Shah
Date: May. 4, 2021
Time: 4:00 p.m. – 5:00 p.m.
Please join us for the virtual, live launch of Youth Amplified – Sheridan’s community partnership initiative rooted in our mission to make education more accessible for all. All Sheridan employees, students, and members of the external community are welcome to attend this free event!
Youth Amplified is a suite of programs fuelled by Sheridan’s caring employee and student community, and partnerships with youth-serving organizations in Brampton, Mississauga and Oakville. Youth Amplified aims to create a sightline into postsecondary education for youth through mentorship, connections to financial aid, guidance through the application process and offering a window into student life and career and education pathways.
We are thrilled to welcome spoken word artist, motivational speaker, and recent Poet Laureate for Mississauga, Wali Shah, to help us launch Youth Amplified with an inspiring keynote address. Shah has delivered TED talks, spoken at hundreds of schools and colleges across North America, and has been named one of Canada’s Top 25 Immigrants by RBC for his philanthropic work and message of positive change, equity and inclusion.
Shah’s keynote address will be accompanied by a Q&A session with Peter Amponsah, Associate Dean of Sheridan’s School of Community Studies, and greetings from Dr. Janet Morrison. The launch will also feature breakout sessions to help community members learn more about the program.
