OUR INITIATIVES ARE DIVIDED
INTO 3 LARGE OPERATIONS:
PuMP Plus is a youth exposition scheduled for April 2020. Secondary school students from all over the GTA are invited to come to our event, where organizations and institutes will host booths and answer any questions regarding careers in the field of STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics). Post-secondary institutions will speak about admissions processes and various high school programs, while experienced guest speakers will share their journeys and involvement in the field.
By providing critical insight from the field of STEM along in an engaging environment, the event will set up 500+ attendees with a tangible lead into their careers.
Our website features PuMP Direct, an online database where students can filter through a variety of health sciences opportunities in their local communities, ranging from leadership to volunteering to research to summer programs. With resources, registration, and connections conveniently in one place, PuMP’s online platform looks to centralize these opportunities so students can easily connect with institutes and elevate their learning.

In addition to our initiatives with students, PuMP seeks to be an active organization in the community. We are always looking to be involved with events and fundraisers with a focus of supporting charities and fellow non-profits. We’d love to partner with you – contact us below!
