School perseverance program now free
TheProgramme Conciliation etudes-travail began two years ago to encourage school perseverance and the employability of youth. To date, 60 employers who employ more than 882 youth in the Memphremagog MRC during the school year have joined the program.
Now there is even more reason for employers to join the program. Employers will be prioritized for the Desjardins Jeunes au Travail grant, training and free conferences. Furthermore, the fees to join the program or to renew membership have been abolished!
The participating employers must take concrete actions and respect certain criteria favoring educational success. They will require their employee/students to work a maximum of twenty hours a week with an adapted work schedule at examination time.
