Bold Ideas

Our Bold Ideas sessions serve as a platform for citizens, activists, and leaders to share their personal, career, and life experiences and challenges with the community, and how they negotiated their life paths around these challenges.

Career Spotlight

Career Spotlight is an opportunity where you can connect with Faculty of Health alumni and learn about their careers. Weekly Zoom meetings feature different alumni from various career paths who share their experiences and answer students' questions. Listed below are the recorded and scheduled zoom meetings! All conversations are moderated by a Calumet & Stong College team member and are followed by an open forum where students will have an opportunity to ask questions.

The Financial Wellness Project

A partnership between Emery Collegiate Institute and Calumet and Stong Colleges established a team of student volunteers from York and Emery that brought an idea into reality. A peer-led financial wellness project follows three characters as they age from 18 to 30 and learn about how their individual money attitudes influence their financial behaviours. Funded by York-TD Community Engagement Centre, this project aims to reduce the financial anxiety experienced by students, parents, and teachers, and aid in a successful post-secondary transition.
