Welcome to the McMaster Children & Youth University

The McMaster Children & Youth University (MCYU) was launched in 2011 and is the first Children’s University in Canada with programming for interactive, family-based discovery. Our guiding philosophy is Question – Discover – CreateTM; Question the world around you, Discover your potential, and Create effective solutions. We offer on-campus, family-oriented, monthly lectures on one Saturday a month (please see the link for more details). We also offer community based programming for youth and their families through our MCYU in the City programming (please see the link for more details). Our program is fueled through the generous time and talents of our volunteers and we offer many different types of volunteering opportunities (see the link below). Furthermore our program also carries out research related to youth education delivery and pedagogy and we will soon start to see the amazing results of these efforts on our “Research” link.
