Connecting with York Alumni

Connecting with York Alumni

As a student, you can learn a lot from YorkU alumni – and they can learn from you, too! From alumni sharing career advice and students volunteering as YorkU ambassadors, to shared network-building through GRADitude, volunteering builds bonds between alumni and alumni-to-be.


The T.A.S.T.E. Mentoring Program provides York Students with an opportunity to talk face to face with a professional about their career related interests. The program pairs York Students with a mentor over one informal meeting during which the mentor shares information about their job, industry, and organization. Students have the opportunity to ask questions and learn more about a role, organization or field of interest.

Our Career Centre is about more than just jobs; it’s a place where students and grads can get help with career planning, take workshops, meet employers and yes, find postings for part-time and permanent jobs. Check it out now – it’s never too early to start planning for your future!

Student Ambassadors

Showcase York’s Impact

“[Being an ambassador] was a really great way to explore the aspects of the University that we don’t see in the classroom. From research to alumni, to volunteer opportunities, it was so great to see the ways the University makes an impact in the local and global community.”

— 2018-2019 President’s Ambassador
