Education Gap

Canadians have always put high importance on education. All resumes include an education section and employers take this seriously. Education gaps prove to be large barriers for youth when it comes to employment and higher education.

According to a Statistics Canada census done in 2016, the high school drop out rate for the country was 14% and jumped as high as 50% in lower income communities. The unemployment rate for youth without a high school diploma is higher than the national average.

Even when a student completes high school, if they didn’t complete the right high school courses, they won’t be able to go into the programs they want to. Educational gaps then become a huge barrier to youth pursuing higher education and/ or specialized career paths.

We help youth by running small tutoring sessions online that are focused on math and science. These programs are aimed at Canadian youth who grew up here and fell behind, as well as youth who are new to Canada and transferred from a different educational system.

Registration is now open for these tutoring sessions, click here to sign up!

One of the factors that can cause a student to drop out of high school is a history of struggling academically. This struggle can be cause by learning disabilities or educational gaps that occurred earlier in a child’s education.
