COVID-19 Update

New online format for YSP

Published, May 14, 2020, 6 PM EDT.

We are excited to announce the new format for the Youth Summer Program.​

The new online format is engaging, academically challenging and interactive to make your summer both fun and rewarding. Even though we cannot get together in one place, the online modules will give students an opportunity to interact with professors every day, connect with fellow students and teaching staff in small groups, and carry out virtual labs using the latest technologies.

​Overview & Benefits of the Online Program

  • The dates and general theme of each module remain the same.
  • The daily schedule has been adjusted for online learning and to minimize “screen fatigue”.
  • The workshops and online labs are engaging, interactive, and test students’ knowledge.
  • Live interactions with professors and teaching staff
  • Small group sessions with teaching staff to allow for customized lesson plans

The Faculty of Law and Faculty of Medicine are offering significant discounts for Summer 2020. We look forward to seeing you this summer.

YSP is moving online

The University of Toronto has been assessing all summer programming in light of the COVID-19 pandemic and changing circumstances, as well as our paramount concern for the health and safety of our community, and the guidance of public health officials. Given the uncertainty of the present situation, the University has reluctantly confirmed that in-person summer camps and programs for summer 2020 will be cancelled.

The Faculty of Law and Faculty of Medicine Youth Summer Program has made the decision to go virtual for Summer 2020! We are committed to providing the best possible learning experience for our participants – rigorous, engaging and supportive.

Even at this time of social distancing, we look forward to continuing to connect our participants and their deep curiosity, passion and enthusiasm for medicine and law!

We will be providing more information about our virtual offerings by May 14, 2020.

Our commitment to you.

As Canada continues to deal with the consequences of the COVID-19 pandemic, the University of Toronto remains committed to playing our part in ensuring the health and well-being of our community. Ensuring the health and safety of our participants is our top priority.

We continue to monitor the development of the outbreak and appropriate responses, including the responses from the Ontario Ministry of Health, Toronto Public Health and government travel advisories. The University follows the advice of public health authorities.

At this time the Youth Summer Program is scheduled to take place as planned. To accommodate your concerns, we have extended the cancellation deadline from May 12, 2020 to June 1, 2020.

We will provide any updates as they become available on our website and by email.
