Services for Adults
The ASD Mentorship Program (AMP) is a free one-on-one mentoring service for York and York@Seneca students. We provide services to students every step of the way, beginning with the transition out of high school all the way through to graduation and employment seeking. Our mentors help students navigate university life and achieve personal goals whether it is developing organizational skills for school success or learning skills for making new peer relationships. We also facilitate social events across the year to create a safe and fun environment for our students to develop a strong peer network.
