It’s Hooked on School Days in Québec this week, a time to highlight students’ efforts, listen to their motivations and aspirations, and encourage them to keep going, “Because with the right support, everyone can persevere.” This sentiment from the Hooked on School Days campaign is something we wholeheartedly agree with at Pathways.

We are constantly evaluating the Pathways Program to ensure we continue to meet the needs of students. Among the data we collect are the results of the annual Trousse d’évaluation des décrocheurs potentiels (TEDP) survey, run by the University of Montréal, which assesses the risk of dropping out. 

We’re pleased to see the results from the 2022-23 school year indicate that Pathways students in Québec felt equipped to navigate high school and were likely to be engaged within their school*: 

  • 88% of Pathways students felt competent and in control in their school environment. 
  • 92% of Pathways students participate in after-school activities.  
  • 89% of Pathways students reported putting effort into their schoolwork.  
  • 94% of Pathways students expressed a desire to finish high school. Among them, 68% expressed an interest in pursuing post-secondary education. 

Truly, these figures highlight the transformation that comes when we back young people. We couldn’t be more proud of the students who are working hard to earn their high school diploma and we thank supporters like you who make this possible. 


*Based on the answers from 1120 students from the following Pathways Program locations: Verdun, Pointe-St-Charles, Gatineau, Joliette, Shawinigan, Drummondville, Laval, Longueuil, and St-Roch.
