Youth helping youth.

We are a charitable organization that is dedicated to helping Canadian children and youth to achieve their full potential as students and future leaders.

We make academic support accessible through the proven peer-tutoring model

 L2L Programs include tutor training and structured peer-tutoring sessions which are hosted at schools and community agencies at no cost. The program is proven to benefit youth by improving academic success, building confidence and providing leadership and skill training opportunities.
