About Street Humanities

The Street Humanities program is a ten-week program which aims to increase access to college for people experiencing barriers. The program is a partnership between the College of New Caledonia (CNC) and Connective.


Through Street Humanities, students are exposed to a range of subjects like astronomy, literature, nutrition wellness, Aboriginal studies and forestry health. The program also includes:

  • Hot meals
  • A bus pass
  • Access to CNC Campus, including gym, library and student events
  • Tuition, books, and other materials


At the end of the program students are given an opportunity to consider further studies at CNC. Students also receive an award of participation at a grad ceremony.
