The Faculty of Kinesiology and Physical Education is pleased to host the SEED Program from March 22 - 26, 2021. 

SEED is offered in partnership with Indigenous Student Services’ First Nations House, Hart House, the Faculty of Law, and the Waakebiness-Bryce Institute for Indigenous Health. The days will also include a session from Toronto Indigenous community educators and human rights activists.

The week will consist of 5 program sessions - 1 hour to 1.5 hours in length, and have limited registration capacity. Youth are encouraged to register in at least 3 of the 5 sessions.

Every youth who attends 3 of the 5 sessions will receive an official certificate of completion and be entered to win a brand NEW Nintendo Switch Lite - with game of their choice! 

Specific program information for the 5 sessions will be posted shortly - access to the internet will be required in order to attend all sessions. 


Registration for SEED will open in January 2021.
