Lessons 'Beyond 3:30' teach Toronto teens life skills

Taylor, an eighth grade student at Carlton Village Public School, credits the skills he's learned to the Junior Chefs' Club, one part of the "Beyond 3:30" after-school program run by the Toronto District School Board. 

The program began in 2009, and is designed for students between Grades 6 and 8. It's now in 18 schools across the city.
