Andrew Woodall, Former Director, Millennium Excellence Award Program, Canada Millennium Scholarship Foundation

The work that Twinbro is doing in high schools is of high importance to young people and to the country. When it comes to promoting access to post-secondary education to youth, one of the most effective strategies is to get them in the room with someone who has overcome adversity, gone on to college or university and can explain the impact it has had on their life. Without this personal contact and biographical storytelling, the idea of post-secondary remains all too unreal and abstract to young people. We at the Canada Millennium Scholarship Foundation are fully supportive of Twinbro’s work and see it as an excellent grass-roots effort to make a change in our society.
