Students Offering Support: Wilfrid Laurier University Raising Marks. Raising Money. Raising Roofs. www.schoolsos.com Students Offering Support Students Offering Support is a charitable sustainable social venture that develops and supports SOS chapters residing within post-secondary schools across North America. Each University SOS chapter raises money to raise roofs through raising marks during our 'Exam- AID' group review sessions, taught and coordinated by student volunteers for university and college students. Each year, the money raised is spent creating sustainable education projects in developing nations on annual outreach trips. Since 2004, over 2,000 SOS volunteers have tutored over 25,000 students and raised more than $900,000 for various development projects across Latin America.
