A new initiative aimed at supporting student retention

On March 27, Jean Charest, Premier of Quebec and Minister responsible for youth issues, officially launched the government's Stratégie d'action jeunesse 2009-2014. Mr. Charest presented the major orientations of the strategy, stressing the importance of some of the challenges it addresses, particularly the issue of student retention. As part of the Stratégie d'action jeunesse, the Quebec government, represented by the Secrétariat à la jeunesse, and the Lucie and André Chagnon Foundation recently concluded an innovative long-term agreement to support the efforts of stakeholders in children's educational success-not only schools and parents, but municipalities, the business community, the health sector and community organizations as well. Since the administrative structure of this initiative has not yet been finalized, applications for financing cannot be processed at present. We will publish all new information on this initiative as soon as it becomes available.
