Young Amautas of the Americas

Young Amautas of the Americas is CERLAC's Youth Summer Program. It guides thirty (30) students, between 14-18 years of age, through an interdisciplinary educational process. Youth will participate in daily activities including art, dance, creative writing, sports, music, trips, and workshops. The curriculum will help students to collectively evaluate the history and culture of Latin America and the Caribbean and the influence of the regions on new generations of youth in the diaspora. Professors and students from CERLAC and York University, as well as teachers, partners, and parents from the community will contribute to this learning experience.

Young Amautas seeks to inspire Latin American and Caribbean youth to pursue postsecondary education by welcoming them to York and giving them a sense of ownership over the knowledge produced about their realities within the university.
