Adventures in Essay Writing

On June 1st, dozens of high school students came from all over the city to join us at U of T for some one-on-one help from some extraordinary volunteers.

Together, volunteers and students tackled the most challenging of school assignments:  The Essay!  From thesis statements to conclusions, students worked alongside their volunteers, receiving the guidance and support that many needed to get the job done.

Essayists and volunteers celebrated essay victory with a BBQ and campus-wide movie-themed scavenger hunt in the afternoon.  A big thanks to Innis College and the Centre for Community Partnerships at U of T and to everyone who came out!
