Toronto Catholic District School Board

Making the most of the summer in the city …

This summer, 28 TCDSB high school students will step into the University of Toronto and explore the worlds of Law and Medicine. 


Every summer the University of Toronto provides students from across North America and around the world an exclusive glimpse into the world of Medicine and Law; and for the past three years, the University has partnered with our board to provide deserving students the opportunity to participate at no cost.


Students spend one week participating and exploring diverse topics in the fields of Law or Medicine, career opportunities, and how to best prepare for post secondary study in these disciplines.


During the Law Youth Summer Program (YSP), students spend their one week at the Faculty of Law discussing legal concepts, learning about the reality of the Canadian legal system, and applying their knowledge in a variety of stimulating environments.  The program offers our students an unprecedented opportunity to spend time in the fascinating world of Canadian and international law, legal thinking and advocacy.


From its home in the University of Toronto’s Medical Sciences Building, in the heart of Toronto’s “Medical Discovery District”, the Med YSP offers students the opportunity to delve into a major medical discipline. Each week, students listen to world-class faculty, participate in hands-on experimentation, guided by medical researchers, in cutting-edge research laboratories. The program’s access to the University of Toronto’s medical faculty and teaching lab facilities allows our students to experience what it is like to be a medical student.

When our students have the opportunity to participate in such rich learning experiences, reflect on them and begin to apply what they have learned to making more informed choices … our youth are better equipped to create their path to success.


In addition to the weeklong program, our students are invited to come down to an orientation at the University of Toronto at the end of June. 

Congratulations TCDSB YSP 2018 students!
