A little tutoring went a long way for 17 Vancouver Island University students.
Hosting exam review sessions for peers earlier this year made possible a two-week volunteer outreach trip to central America.
It all began last fall when a group of science students decided to start a Students Offering Support chapter at the university.
Students Offering Support, or SOS for short, is a national outreach program that requires branches to organize review sessions for students before mid-terms and final exams for a $20 donation, with all proceeds going toward initiatives in developing countries. The group also organizes volunteer outreach trips.
