  • “As with many of the speakers, they do an amazing job, I know this when after a lecture, the first things I hear my daughter say is "I can't wait to go to University, how many more years now Mum?" I can't thank the people behind MCYU enough, for lighting this desire in my daughter.”

    Parent

  • “Besides the wonderful lectures, the program de-mystifies university for children - particularly those whose parents did not attend university. It also reinforces the idea of lifelong learning. Way to go!!”

  • “The MCYU Events were an amazing opportunity for my group of students. They were so eager to attend each month and would discuss the lectures and activities for days afterwards.”

  • “Many of the kid's parents are new to Canada and do not have a lot of knowledge about post-secondary education. The MCYU events allowed them to be exposed to some of the possibilities out there.”
