Back to school: source of joy for one student, stress for the other. Discover the various resources of the PRECA to help you support them.

With the start of the school year, young people experience a big change in their routine. For some, this change is good. For others, going back to school has its share of torments and they may show signs of anxiety that can reduce their chances of success.

One organization whose mission is to promote school perseverance is the PRÉCA, the Partners for Educational Success in Chaudière-Appalaches. Actively involved in Hooked on School Days, they offer more interesting resources than the others on this subject.

On September 27, they will present the webinar Anxiety: better understanding to act better given by Julie Beaulieu, professor at UQAR. A great opportunity to support these students who are having more difficulty in the first weeks of the start of the school year. Unable to attend? You can still register to receive the recording.
