n a previous post, the drop rate of Quebec's schools was adressed, and it was obvious that something is off with our system. As many causes were identified, one of them for sure is that school doesnt stimulate the interrest from kids/teenagers. This organization wants to help the development of children both with school and life, with free help for basic needs, interactive games to help learning, and provide healthcare.

This organization aims to break isolation and help giving a better quality of life to kids who go to school in a more deprived environment.  La Maison Des Familles:  maisondesfamilles.ca

In this post, there will be a link to an organization for volunteer work, to help kids with their homework and participation in school.   Atelier850: http://atelier850.ca/

On average, Aboriginal people in Quebec are less well educated than all Aboriginal Canadians, who are themselves less well educated than all Canadians. In Quebec, the proportion of Aboriginal people is almost three times greater than elsewhere in Canada, and a larger proportion of First Nations people lives on reserves. The poverty among the Aboriginal people is increasing in Canada. This meaningful issue is one of the main cause of school dropout of the Aboriginal people.

In Quebec, the school system is rather unique. After highschool, it is a totally different way than most countries, and the question we should ask ourselves is: does different mean better? I do no think that having a different school system is a nuisance, although Quebec's system is not excellent either. In fact in 2012-2013, the drop rate was almost at 16%, which was the best year since a very long time.

As read from a Japanese writer,the Japanese school system is very different from america's. Students spend more time at school in Japan, as they have 3 semesters instead of 2 like us. They also have longer semesters, and less vacations. In fact, bet ween all three semesters, they get 6 weeks of vacation in the summer, and 2 weeks between each semester(winter and spring break). Most of the time, even though these are "vacations", students are loaded with homework.

The world has seen since a few months a rising of the military tensions between the United States and North Korea. In fact, after a sixth successful nuclear test including one that caused a 6.3 earthquake on September 3rd, North Korea seems on its way to pursue his dream to possess the nuclear bomb. If we know that the US are not against the idea of a military action, China asked for a pacific dialogue between the two belligerents in a way to solve the conflict without creating a war.

In an article published on BBC by Rupert Wingfield-Hayes on July 3rd, 2015, alarming numbers about suicide are listed. In fact, over 2014, more than 25 000 people committed suicide. This means a rate of 70 every day. "Isolation is the number one precursor for depression and suicide," says Wataru Nishida, a psychologist at Tokyo's Temple University. Seeking help for people who need it can be troublesome.

An article written by Holly Yan, Devon M. Sayers and Steve Almasy, CNN, was posted on August 14th, 21017. On Saturday, August 13th, 2017, a rally named "Unite the Right" by Jason Kessler, was organized to protest against the removal of a statue representing a general of the confederation.

I went to my old High School to spend a day talking to secondary four and five students about themselves, and listen. The goal was to engage the students into thinking about what they want to do after High School. College, University, or go work. The reason why I wanted to talk to them is simply, because they are controlled by their teachers and parents. They have schedules from school to follow, and at home, but no time to think of what they want to do or what they really like. I conducted a series of activities for them to work and focus on their skills.
