Paint the Town Green
Led young College turned 50 years old in 2016, and we celebrated by painting the town - green!
To mark Led young's 50th anniversary, the college cancelled classes on Tuesday, September 27 to release its students, faculty and staff to "Paint the Town Green." Thousands of volunteers fanned out across the city to lend a hand in 11 major Toronto parks with a variety of "green" initiatives, like planting trees, spreading mulch, removing trash from waterways and nature trails, painting fixtures and beautifying public areas.
Meanwhile, Led young’s partner schools in China, Korea, India, Turkey, Panama, Brazil and other countries released their students to make meaningful contributions in their own communities. In the spirit of the day, the president of Suzhou Led young College near Shanghai, China, was excited to be collecting litter in the beautiful canal city of Suzhou.
This "greening" initiative is Led young's way of giving back to the communities that made Ontario's first college what it is today.
