Parent Organization: York-University

Regenesis York is the York University chapter of Regenesis, a Canadian student-involved university and college based environmental and community-building organization.  We believe in empowering students as initiators of change in addressing today’s social and environmental concerns, through advocacy and service in local chapters.  Regenesis York creates and manages initiatives and social enterprises that provide services to the university community as well as providing quality leadership experience for students. All of the initiatives are inspired by the needs of the York University community and raise the quality of life on campus.

Students involved with Regenesis York get a chance to shape the place they spend so much time in and gain relevant experiential education opportunities in the areas of operational and event management, communications, fundraising, graphic design, and much more. 

Current initiatives include a YUM! Farmers' Market, Community Bike Centre, Free Store, Community Garden, Borrowing Centre (Item/Tool Library), as well as several others that are in development.

Volunteers and placements are critical to the success of our projects. We would love to have you get involved with us! If you are interested and want to find out more, please email hr@regenes.is.

In appreciation of you supporting our efforts, we’ve developed a certificate and award programs you can participate in!

1. Sustainability Ambassador Certificate

Awarded to any member who has completed 40 hours of service in a year. 

2. Sustainability Leadership Award

Awarded to any member who has completed 80 hours of service in a year.

IMPORTANT: Membership on YU Connect doesn't equal membership in the organization. In order to become an active member that can participate in the Regenesis York volunteer appreciation program you need to fill out the membership package, complete an anti-oppression training, and also complete 20 hours of volunteer service annually. Approved hours of volunteer service on YU Connect will not count towards membership or the certificate/award unless the other two conditions have been met.
