We are proud to recognize and thank donors and sponsors who support the Ontario Science Centre through philanthropic contributions.
Our Youth 4 Youth (Y4Y) Innovation Program has a new partner! We are so grateful that Scotiabank has committed $300,000 to sponsoring this STEM mentorship and learning program for three years. This support means local community access to a unique science learning experience.
The Y4Y program takes global issues and considers them at a local scale. From designing space stations, addressing plastics in the oceans and providing access to clean drinking water to brainstorming affordable housing options, cleaning up the Don River and thinking about community mental health services, the program empowers students from the Flemingdon and Thorncliffe communities to expand their concept of STEM beyond the classroom and recognize all of the dynamic fields and disciplines worth exploring. Participants leave with a better sense of how they can contribute to STEM research and how their findings can impact communities both locally and abroad.
“Scotiabank is proud to support the Youth 4 Youth program and empower students from local, underserved communities through STEM learning and mentorship. We believe that together we can create more inclusive communities by removing barriers to advancement and increasing access to opportunities for everyone.” – Maria Saros, Vice-President and Global Head of Social Impact at Scotiabank.
