Turning Points is an impactful program that promotes character awareness, resilience and literacy among Canadian public school students through written expression.
A national program for students in Grades 6 to 12, Turning Points enables students to open up about significant events or experiences in their lives. With the support of their peers and teachers, students explore their values and find the confidence to write a personal essay. The program empowers students to reflect upon their values, promotes resiliency and provides students with the opportunity to expand their literacy skills.
At the culmination of the program, students have the opportunity to become a published author in an annual anthology.
Thanks to the generous support of our partners, this program is available free of charge to schools.
