Program Spotlight

Contributing to improving education outcomes in Nunavik

In partnership with Kativik Ilisarniliriniq, the school board of Nunavik, Quebec, we introduced a three-year math and literacy tutor program for high school students. We hired 10 tutors to offer math support to students through flexible, personalized instruction both in class and outside of school hours, and help students progress in math in order to graduate.

After the second year of the program, students, teachers, and parents have seen a great difference in grades, but also in the students’ attitudes and confidence in their math skills.

  • 85% of students said they had a better understanding of math since they started working one-to-one with their tutor.
  • 83% of teachers said that students have improved in completing their schoolwork.

"I never used to even try these questions, but now I actually like doing it. Math is fun when you know how to do it!"

"You are really making a difference; impressive that you have kids working after school and on weekends on their math."
