SmartKiDz introduces high school students to unique educational and leadership opportunities that are steeped in experiential and project-based learning. Every assignment project includes lessons, discussions and hands-on activities that seek to connect youth to their learning community through positive exploration of global issues. Participants begin to create post-secondary entrance portfolios that include these value-based experiences in leadership training, eco-learning and activism, volunteering, cultural understanding and language exploration. The workshops will be delivered by SmartKiDz staff and SFU volunteers at the SFU Surrey-TD Community Engagement Centre.

DRIVEN is a program created by SFU students and high school students to reach out to teens in grades 11-12 who might be feeling disengaged and uncertain about their future. Approximately 50% of students do not attend post-secondary education right after high school and may be interested in exploring other options. DRIVEN will create a social environment where secondary students can make connections with peers, SFU students and community. Guest speakers will share their personal journey providing a road map of what the possibilities are after graduation.

Adjusting to a new school in a new country can be very challenging for newcomer English Language Learners (ELL’s) who face new challenges in a new country as well as challenges at school. Specifically, these students face double the workload. Newcomer students, for example, have to learn academic English and curriculum as well as integrate into the new school culture and community environment.
