To make our young people active and involved citizens, we must build a society where everyone knows their duties, obligations and rights. We believe it starts in school, at an early age.
The free legal education workshops offered by Éducaloi aim to develop young people's legal reflexes.
During a period of class, high school students have the opportunity to meet volunteer lawyers and discuss topics that affect them on a daily basis, such as bullying, consent to sexual relations between minors, conflict resolution, and more.
In total, 46 schools in Quebec received a workshop during “National Legal Education Week” last November. The professors testified: legal education is a fascinating subject, when popularized by a passionate person!
In fact, Éducaloi's clear and accessible language is designed to help them develop a body of knowledge that will be useful to them in many circumstances.
To be well prepared, your students will not only need to know the rules of the game of social life, but also understand their rights. Think about the legal aspect of all the everyday situations they are about to encounter: labor standards, purchasing and consumption, health care, housing, etc.
Unfortunately, a good number of Quebecers still do not master basic legal concepts. Indeed, according to the big national quiz that we conducted last October, the 8,500 participants obtained an overall average of 54 %.
