Agents of Change Expo

On behalf of Calumet and Stong Colleges and the Agents of Change Program, we formally invite the York Community to the Agents of Change Expo on Wednesday, June 8, from 6 to 9 p.m. at Founders College (Room 152).

The Agents of Change Program supports students in creating community-oriented initiatives that address the social determinants of health and United Nations Sustainable Development Goals through provision of seed-funding, networking opportunities, and mentorship.

The purpose of this event is to bring together students, peer leaders, alumni, staff, and other active community members together to learn about and network with the Agents of Change projects for 2021-2022. The Agents of Change Expo 2022 will also be an opportunity to learn about the impact of the current Agents of Change projects in the community, as well as their successes, challenges, and future direction.

For those interested in applying for the Agents of Change program, this will be an opportunity for you to interact with project leads, learn about Agents of Change projects, crystallize your thoughts, and ask questions to Agents of Change Program staff and current project leads. At the Agents of Change Expo, you will have the opportunity to connect with the following:

  • Black Students Mentorship Program (BSMP), led by Amanda Nkeramihigo and Edman Abukar
