Humanities for Young People (HYP), is a non-credit programme for ambitious teens who want an intellectual challenge and a taste of college life. HYP is open to all Canadian students ages 14 to 16 with an interest in writing, in reading, and in thoughtful inquiry.

The theme for HYP 2017 is The Challenges of Reconciliation. The Canadian Truth and Reconciliation Commission Final Report, released in 2015, insists that “education is the key to reconciliation.” HYP 2017 offers you the chance to study works from the Indigenous and Western traditions to enrich your understanding of Canada’s current reconciliation process.
