Community programs for youth

Branches helps students, from elementary-level to CEGEP, map their paths towards post-secondary education. Working with school boards, educators, families and McGill community members, we create responsive, sustainable programming that encourages young students to persevere in school and see themselves as lifelong learners. 

While our programs are all intersectional in delivery, we know that youth from underrepresented communities can face unique challenges. We deliver programming that creates a safe place for identity-based connection and mentorship.

McGill University is on land that long served as a site of meeting and exchange amongst
Indigenous peoples, including the Haudenosaunee and Anishinabeg nations. We acknowledge
and thank the diverse Indigenous people whose footsteps have marked this territory on which
peoples of the world now gather.
