As part of our mission to ensure that kids succeed in school and grow into healthy adults, the On Track to Success Program was officially launched in Leamington during the Spring of 2015.
Research tells us that keeping kids in school can improve many life outcomes, including helping to lift them out of the cycle of poverty, improved health, higher life-long earning potential, and reducing the likelihood of at–risk behaviours like substance misuse, and illegal activities. United Way has spent the last year and a half building a network of collaborative partners which have designed a made-in-Windsor-Essex program to ensure more youth graduate from high school and are able to attend
Students enrolled in the program will have the chance to earn up to $4,000 for post-secondary education, as well as access to services incluing tutoring, social and recreational activities, chances to volunteer in the community, career building & mentoring opportunities, and individualized support.
The third-party evaluation of this program is funded by: the Government of Ontario.
