The Ed-Vance Program
You've been out of school long enough to gain perspective, long enough to know that education is the answer to the career - and the life - you want. The trouble is: you need more credits. You need to brush up on reading, writing, and math skills. You need the right connections to universities, colleges, apprenticeships, and the workforce. But where do you turn?
Turn to Ed-Vance. And advance your talent, your skills, your creativity.
If you're 18 to 20 and would like to participate in an information session about the Ed-Vance program for an upcoming quad, please see "How do I register?" (below) for dates on when you can come to 1 Danforth Avenue to pick up an appointment sheet for registration the following week. Appointments are granted first-come, first-served until our program is full. If you bring a Credit Counselling Summary or Transcript this will help determine if the program is suitable for your needs.
