Bringing two communities together at the Daily Bread Cafe  

UM students mentor the next generation through CanU programming

January 30, 2024 — 

The Daily Bread Cafe in St John’s College is known for its delicious food and the communities it brings together, like CanU.   

CanU is a not-for-profit organization that serves children in grades five through twelve with programming to prepare them for post-secondary education.  

In collaboration with departments across the University of Manitoba, including Engineering, Science, Recreation Services, Bison Sports, and St John’s, to name a few, CanU works with UM students to be mentors for the next generation of students through weekly programming.  

From hands-on experiences in faculties and activities that allow UM students to share and mentor participants, it’s an encompassing experience for CanU participants that allows them to gain insight into the university experience.   

At the end of the program, participants end their day in the Daily Bread Cafe, where they enjoy a family-style meal together, talking about their experiences with their mentors and future goals, and deepening their connection together.   


St John’s is proud to host CanU students in the Daily Bread Cafe and is excited for what’s ahead.
