Some of the invited schools in the past included North Georgetown Secondary, Annandale Secondary, Richard Ishmael Secondary, Christ Church Secondary and Bishops’ High School.

Among the intended short-term outcomes for students are an increase in subject-area knowledge as well as improved access to alumni resources for mentoring possibilities. We hope that through exposure to supplemental information and soft-skills training, students will be better prepared for post-secondary life. Some of the seminars feature group activities to help with teambuilding.
