Glenwood Auto Service Supports Teen Challenge

Dennis Smail started with Teen Challenge 14 years ago and implemented a 12 month strategy to turn the program around. The Teen Challenge program supports men and women that are 18 years old and up to be able to turn their life around. These men and women are involved in drug or alcohol abuse, prostitution or other crimes. Teen Challenge runs a men’s and women’s program to provide these people with a place to stay that is safe and provides them the support they need to change the direction of their life in a positive way. They live on site and over 50% of men and women that are part of the program stay clean and become ambassadors for the program.

Dennis estimated that Glenwood Auto Service’s support of the program for over the last ten years would be valued at over $150,000! This is what Dennis had to say about Rob Scott, owner of Glenwood Auto Service: 

“Rob is committed to supporting the program, he is the first guy into the shop and last one to leave and takes pride in his business.” 

Dennis has also been a customer of Glenwood Auto for over 15 years and he said that “Quality lives long after price is forgotten.” He feels grateful to be able to work with Rob on the Teen Challenge program and refer to him as a friend. 

So what does Glenwood Auto do to support the program? 

Glenwood Auto Service gives complimentary service for the Teen Challenge 10 passenger vans and other vehicles used for the program. They also make donations through gifts in kind. Rob and the Glenwood Auto team's support has helped the program to be able to continue to run. This allowed the Teen Challenge staff to use funds and donations for assisting the men and women that are part of the program as opposed to fixing vehicles. They are currently building a new women’s facility out by Hague!


After speaking with Rob about his involvement he was, as usual, very modest. He said, “This program helps encourage a better community and supports these kids to have a better future by getting back on the right foot!”



Glenwood Auto Service are proud to be corporate partners for Teen Challenge Saskatchewan and the Trusted Saskatoon team  are proud to partner with Glenwood Auto Service!

 

The Trusted Saskatoon tutors share tips for learning over the holidays


Trusted Sakatoon tutors and educators

DOES YOUR HOLIDAY TO-DO LIST INCLUDE LEARNING?

Like most families, you and the kids are probably looking forward to a break from the normal hectic routine. No rushed mornings, no after-school homework battles, and lots of downtime spent with loved ones. While your holiday to-do list may include baking, decorating, and travelling, there’s one to-do item that shouldn’t be overlooked this holiday season: learning.

Scheduling holiday learning keeps kids on track academically, maintains school habits, and helps make the transition back-to-school post-holiday that much smoother.

But learning over the holidays doesn’t have to be boring! Keeping the cognitive wheels turning over the holiday break can be as simple as playing board games, reading books, or writing thank you cards.

Encourage kids to do at least one learning activity a day over the holidays to help them stay on track academically.


 


 

Trusted Saskatoon tutors share Why Failing an Exam is A Good Thing.

Why Failing an Exam is A Good Thing

Wait, what?!  

We don’t mean failing a FINAL exam is a good thing, but researchers have discovered that taking pretests (testing knowledge before actually learning course material) can help students better focus and retain information on key content, helping them do better overall in classes than if they merely studied as normal.

“[A] (bombed) pretest drives home the information in a way that studying as usual does not. We fail, but we fail forward.”

As an article in the New York Times explains, students who were given pretests during multiple experiments generally scored higher than control group counterparts. Researchers believe that their wrong answers on pretests weren’t just useless shots in the dark; they actually primed students’ brains to receive the information to come, helping them learn and recall correct information more effectively later on.
