Obtaining an education is fundamental to seizing opportunity and achieving a self-sufficient lifestyle. Yet, kids from low-income communities or broken families, who rely on education for social mobility more than any one, often struggle to obtain a helpful education in Canadian society. We want to improve education in traditional public schools and also look to other models and programs that can offer all Canadian youth a fair chance at success.
Watch our interviews with Canadian experts to learn more about how we can help more kids learn effectively in our schools.
