Becoming a student affiliate with CFYS opens doors to research assistantships, community partnerships, scholarships, and participation in events such as conferences.

Relevant experience to support your degree

Being connected to CFYS provided an excellent opportunity to get involved in the university and I am passionate about youth issues – and getting to meet other students who feel similarly. Being involved with CFYS helped me to connect more deeply with the university –I learnt more about what the University has to offer and how they like to incorporate the community into their research."
