MCYU in the City was founded in 2014 in order to take the MCYU brand of educational experiences out to communities. These 1 hour workshops are developed based on questions and interests from youth ages 7-14 and challenge them to work in teams to creatively develop solutions to issues that they may face in their everyday lives. The workshops are facilitated by highly trained McMaster Students who work interactively with youth following our education credo:
Our student facilitators guide the youth to Question the world around them, Discover their own potential, and work together to Create solutions. This inquiry based learning method empowers youth by demonstrating that they are an important part of the discovery process that happens all around them, every day.
MCYU in the City has formed valuable partnerships with Hamilton Wentworth District School Board, Hamilton Public Library, Boys and Girls Clubs of Hamilton, the YMCA Beyond the Bell Program, The North Hamilton Community Centre and Pathways to Education, The Cathy Weaver after school program as well as the Hamilton Home School Network. Our workshops can be carried out in community centers, libraries and schools.
