Project ADVANCE

Summer Transition Program for YORK Students with Disabilities

Project ADVANCE (PA) is a FREE transition program offered through Student Accessibility Services (SAS). It is a two-week intensive program designed to prepare York students with documented disabilities for success in their post-secondary studies.

PA Participants will have an opportunity to:

  • Learn about assistive technologies
  • Attend learning skills sessions on topics such as "Critical Thinking"
  •  Become familiar with York's Keele campus and the supports that are available here
  • Examine individual areas of academic strength and weakness as they relate to the challenges of university studies
  • Develop self advocacy skills

While we welcome students at any point in their studies at York, (provided they are newly registered with SAS), the primary focus of PA is the transition from high school to university.

In August 2018, PA will run from Monday, August 13th to Friday, August 24th.  There is a SAS Orientation  session on Sunday, August 12th that PA participants are expected to attend.  Parents or other support persons are invited to take part in this orientation session.

New students interested in taking part in PA must be accepted into York University for  the upcoming year (summer 2018, fall/winter 2018-2019) and  they must complete our online Summer 2018 "PA" Application by Monday, August 6th.  

Additional information about PA is available on our  Project ADVANCE Q & A page.
