Work/Study Program

The Work/Study Program at York University provides eligible undergraduate students (domestic and international) with the opportunity to develop professional skills and contribute to the university through paid, on-campus employment opportunities. These on campus work experiences will enrich and complement your classroom experiences. In addition, you will be given the support and tools needed to develop proficiency in core competencies that will contribute to your long term personal and professional success and develop your capacity to lead.

Leadership, Engagement and Ambassadorship Program (LEAP) – LEAP positions focus on engaging undergraduate students in roles within the faculties, colleges, programs, or the university at large, that enhance the overall student experience at York university. LEAP roles allow students to develop skills such as leadership, peer mentoring, and peer support within the University setting and are less clerical in nature than the typical Work/Study position (e.g. less than 20% clerical). Examples of positions include: YU Start Leader, Student Recruitment Ambassadors and Peer Educators/Mentors.
