Pathways to Education

Every year, thousands of students make the life-altering decision to drop out of high school.  

In low-income communities across Canada, the high school dropout rate can reach up to 50 per cent, taking a dramatic toll on our communities, our health and justice systems, and our economy. Dropping out creates an achievement gap that can negatively affect youth and their families for the rest of their lives.

 


We're dramatically improving graduation rates across the country, with students graduating from high school and joining the workforce as Canada’s future leaders.

 

Partnering with communities across the country, we're helping students overcome barriers related to poverty, graduate from high school, and realize their true potential.


We know our program works, but the demand is outpacing our ability to help. There are thousands of students and hundreds of communities that still need Pathways to Education.

 

It doesn’t need to be this way. With your help, we can reach more students who are facing barriers in their communities. We can directly address high school dropout rates across Canada and, by doing so, change lives and transform communities. But we can’t do it without you.

Help us realize the dream of getting more students to graduation.
