For a better future, perseverance is always in the present tense!

School perseverance is a group effort!

Teachers who guide, relatives who congratulate, employers who support, friends who listen, or coaches who motivate – these seemingly minor everyday actions have a major impact on young people’s perseverance at school and educational success.

When we encourage, listen to, support, and guide our young people, their determination and perseverance shines through.

Let’s give them what they need to believe in their dreams, unlock their potential, and persevere. 


For a better future, perseverance is always in the present tense

From February 12 to 16, 2024, please join us for the 20th edition of Hooked on School Days (HSD) in Quebec. In Estrie, we celebrate our 15the anniversary! HSD has grown over the years into a can’t-miss event. Its enduring goal is to remind us of our vital role in motivating young people and helping them persevere. Whether individually or collectively, our actions encourage young people from early childhood to adulthood to stay in school.
