Promoting perseverance within the community


Various tools were developed with the following objectives in mind:

  • to increase awareness related to dropping out  in different areas in Estrie, and reasons to get involved;
  • to propose an approach for community mobilization with regard to student perseverance and academic success;
  • to guide elected officials and leaders in the community in the choice of actions most likely to have a positive impact on qualification and graduation in their area;
  • to promote the development of the humane, social, cultural and economic components of a community.
