Two legal associations are funding youth opportunities to explore the law through the University of Toronto’s Youth Summer Program (YSP).

The Canadian Association of Black Lawyers (CABL) and the Canadian Hispanic Bar Association (CHBA) have each established scholarships for Black and Hispanic students in Grades 10, 11 or 12, who are interested in participating in one of the Youth Summer Program’s legal modules.
