On January 22, the members of WYA’s University of Toronto Chapter welcomed WYA founder, Anna Halpine, to speak about human dignity and some of the main projects currently ongoing at the World Youth Alliance.
About a year ago, a group of passionate individuals decided to start promoting WYA’s ideas at the University campus located in downtown Toronto. Throughout the year, the main activity of the Chapter has been to hold discussions about Track A and they are looking to grow their membership and become more involved with upcoming WYA events.
The talk was held at the Center for International Experience in the heart of the U of T Campus. Our audience consisted of students from diverse backgrounds: engineering, philosophy and biology were some of the represented areas. Anna spoke of the beginnings and core ideas of the World Youth Alliance. She also shared current projects like FEMM and the Human Dignity Curriculum. The U of T Chapter hopes to implement some of these programs in the near future.
The talk was an excellent opportunity for new people to know about WYA’s presence at U of T. For some of the members that have been around for the monthly discussions, it was great to hear from Anna what hard work and the determination of young people can do in promoting an adequate understanding of the human person. The chapter is looking forward to see their membership grow and hope that in the near future more Torontonians will join this Dignity Project!
