Schools Outreach Programs


SEDE works with Montréal school boards and various McGill partners to support families and youth underrepresented in the McGill population, including youth from socio-economically marginalized and/or Indigenous communities. Our goal is to work with school boards, educators, families, and members of the McGill community to create responsive, sustainable programming that encourage young students to persevere in school and see themselves as lifelong learners.

Homework Zone, My Day @ McGill, and Spaghetti Nights Family Workshops make up the core of SEDE’s school programming as they support the child in school, outside school and with their families at home, respectively. In 2016-17, we welcomed three schools from the English Montréal School Board to participate in our programs: Pierre-Elliott Trudeau (Villeray), Parkdale (Ville-St-Laurent), and Gerald McShane (Montréal-Nord). 

Land Acknowledgment

Map of Montreal

McGill University is situated on the traditional territory of the Kanien’keha:ka, a place which has long served as a site of meeting and exchange amongst nations. We recognize and respect the Kanien’keha:ka as the traditional custodians of the lands and waters on which we meet today.* 

Recognizing the history of where you stand is important, and becoming increasingly common practice when hosting events and activities across Canada.

Here are a few tips to remember if you want to make a land acknowledgment before a class presentation, in a written document, or when hosting an event.
