Youth Fusion offers a simple and innovative program that tackles one of the most pressing problems facing Quebec youth today- increasing high school drop out rates.
Youth Fusion counters drop out rates in high schools by creating innovative partnerships between universities and high schools. The formula is simple: Youth Fusion sends university students, working as project coordinators, into high schools to implement programs that motivate teenagers to stay in school, and strengthen their school spirit and sense of belonging.
