17Edu provides comprehensive educational services in North America. Over the past couple of years, 17Edu has partnered with top universities and collaborate with many fortune 500 companies to provide numerous quality programs and opportunities for students from both China and Canada. The platform brings together educational elites from all over the world to provide more than 600 high-quality public welfare courses for young people during the pandemic, which are well received by the governments and communities at all three levels.
17-Study Club falls under the 17 Education Association. It receives support from hardworking volunteers–many of whom are Canadian high school students. 17-Study Club contains the critical thinking and discussion-based learning style of North America which is expressed through interactive classes and community activities for children. Their focus is to help young children become more competent and involved members of the community. This is achieved through communication by placing emphasis on leadership, problem solving, teamwork and creativity. 17-Study Club provides interactive opportunities for Canadian high school student-volunteers to enhance their skills in organization, leadership, collaboration and entrepreneurial thinking. It also provides a platform for professionals in the education industry to engage in English story reading, critical thinking, as well as teamwork programs and activities for younger students. Thanks to the online services provided by 17-Study Club, children can learn and grow together as a group during the pandemic and in future.
