Program Mission

Objective of the T.A.S.T.E. Program 

The objective of the T.A.S.T.E. Program is to provide York Students and new graduates with an opportunity to connect with professionals in their field of interest.

This program pairs students and new graduates with a mentor for a one-time career chat. During the meeting, the mentor shares information about their job, industry, and organization, and mentees get the opportunity to ask questions, receive guidance, and gain industry insights.
