Established as Toronto's first public college in 1966, Centennial College offers programs in business, communications, community and health studies, science and engineering technology, general arts, hospitality and transportation.
Summer 2013 HYPE application form now available!
The HYPE program at Centennial College has given many young people new confidence to return to school by helping to overcome the economic and social barriers that may have interfered with school attendance in the past and by providing a nurturing, inclusive environment for youth aged 17-29, primarily living in the underserved neighbourhoods of Toronto.
My name is Daniel Ramdeo and I am a graduate of the HYPE Program. If it was not for the HYPE program I would not currently be enrolled in college or have knowledge of post-secondary education. HYPE allowed me to enter college not alone, but with new friendships created within the program. This made my experience less intimidating. I am currently attending Centennial College and enrolled in the Business program.
I was also the Vice President of the First Generation Student Club, and am currently the Representative of the School of Business. I have also gained a lot of experience, both volunteer and employment, with the college thanks to HYPE. My goals and hopes for the future are to continue to create music and apply my business knowledge in the industry and make a profit while pursing my passion.
