YSP – March Break 2021

The Youth Summer Program (YSP) was established in 2008. Every summer students from across North America and around the world are offered an exclusive glimpse into the worlds of Medicine and Law. A unique modular-based approach has been used to provide students with a diverse set of subject areas and flexibility. YSP students gain understanding of the practice of Medicine and Law, career opportunities in these fields, and leave equipped with post-secondary education access and success strategies. ​

In light of ongoing COVID-19 public health restrictions, the Law March Break module will go virtual for 2021! We are committed to providing the best possible learning experience for our participants – rigorous, engaging and supportive. Our schedule will remain the same, however our fees will be discounted to reflect the change!

Registration for our 2021 Virtual March Break Program will open on Wednesday December 16, 2020 at 10am EST.

Are you an aspiring lawyer or judge? Are you interested in justice and advocacy?

 If so, Youth Leaders in Law (YLL) is the perfect opportunity for you!​

YLL is a student-founded nonprofit organization that is partnered with the Canadian Bar Association's Equality, Diversity, and Inclusion Committee. Every year, they host a career conference that connects high school students with lawyers and law schools with the goal of encouraging diverse students to pursue a career in law. They also host an annual mixed media contest on the topic of 'Access to Justice' with cash prizes available.


One of YLL's primary goals is to increase the accessibility of the legal profession to students before they enter post-secondary school, so this conference is completely free of charge.


You can sign up for the event using this link:

 This year, the conference will be held virtually on March 20th, 2021 from 10:00 am to 1:00 pm MDT and will welcome students from around the world. Students will have the opportunity to network with distinguished lawyers and work through a legal scenario under the guidance of lawyers. In addition, they will have the opportunity to hear from current law school students, articling students, and the deans of admission at two of Canada's top 5 universities.

​Asse International Student Exchange Programs offers students the opportunity to study abroad.

Participating in an exchange program gives students more than just knowledge about another country and its language and culture.  Time spent living abroad teaches you about building friendships, taking responsibility for themselves, respecting differences and tolerating the beliefs of others.

The Summer STEM Institute (SSI) was founded with the mission of making research and mentorship accessible to high school students. The program was initially started by a team of graduates, students, and educators from Stanford, Harvard, MIT, and other leading universities.

The program believes that conducting research in high school is an incredibly valuable and rewarding educational experience. By wrangling through unstructured and creative tasks in the scientific method and learning how to present and communicate findings, students develop invaluable technical and communication skills that will serve them throughout their careers in any field. It is no coincidence that those that excel in high school research go on to achieve much in college and beyond. The mission of SSI is to make this learning experience accessible to talented students around the world.

​Leading Learners is taking in student ambassadors for our new school year, on a roll-in basis. This is an opportunity available for students in high school and post-secondary to meet and engage with students on the national level. Each week, ambassadors are given a question to reflect upon their leadership and learning skills. As an example, 'what are three personal skills you believe you are strong in?' Through supervised chat-based messaging, Student Ambassadors are able to view responses from other students across Canada and gain insight on how they can build their leadership skills. By engaging students at Leading Learners, we bring new energy into our mission-based work while developing future leaders of your communities.

To date, our impact is to over 100,000 Canadian students, and we are looking forward to accepting students into our program throughout your school as well. To get to know our full story and values at Leading Learners, visit our about page at, or our website,
