Our Impact

Across our programmes, we aim to help youth develop as leaders and help those at-risk build key resiliency strategies while also promoting positive mental health among students to prepare them for a variety of post-secondary pathways.

We are proud of our history of advocacy to help shape education policy while also providing services directly to Canadian students as they navigate the difficulties of high school and prepare to transition to the work force, apprenticeships, college, or university.

Concurrently, our Policy Programmes include an online platform that allows students to better understand their rights in the education system, advocate for their own interests, and get help from the FCSS-FESC when they encounter barriers in their schools.

 

Elevate

Elevate is a series of workshops and seminars that teach students about mental well-being, resiliency, and coping with difficult situations in high school. Students are taught how to seek accomodations and advocate for themselves in their schools.

Aspire

Aspire is a preparatory conference that teaches students how to write compelling applications for university, speak with recruiters and admissions staff, and how to make an effective transition from high school to post-secondary.


Student Bill of Rights

The Student Bill of Rights is our proposal to address the lack of student-centric policies in the education system across Canada. We believe that students should come first and that their interests matter; a view we're bringing to policymakers in education.

Project DEMYSTIFY 

Project Demystify makes education regulations, laws, and policies more accessible and easier to understand. We also help students navigate systems and processes within their schools and school boards to ensure their needs are being met.
