  • College Tours—Youth visit various colleges and universities. College tours allow students to determine the best environment for learning, make informed decisions regarding their post-secondary education, and experience college life.

  • Evoke Your Imagination— Combines cultural events, reading, and writing assignments to fuel the love of the written and spoken word. Students present written perspectives expressing how the event or reading affected them.  This activity is designed to incite interest and encourage broader perspective in choosing study subjects such as international studies, social entrepreneurship, allied health, etc.

  • Revel in Majestic Words—Themed lessons tackle societal issues such as human trafficking, domestic violence, and environmental concerns amongst others. Students reflect their interpretation through writing assignments, oral presentations, or the arts. This activity enables participants to formulate thoughts, transform them to the spoken or written word and communicate those thoughts in a coherent manner to others.

  • Talk to Me Speaker Series—Students are introduced to various speakers and career opportunities—those procured through traditional and non-traditional paths.

  • Table Talk Discussion— A monthly forum enabling students to share and discuss their writings, in addition to, exposing youth to journal writing. Through journaling, students acquire a respect for writing as a valid form of expression, gain confidence in writing, and find comfort in the written word.
