(Press release) The Academos organization is launching a digital campaign to develop the financial knowledge of young people aged 14 to 22 and to interest them in the benefits of sound management of their personal finances, in collaboration with Desjardins and Finance Montréal.
On the eve of the start of the new school year, the Academos organization carried out a vast consultation with young Quebecers in order to find out their level of academic motivation. A similar exercise, carried out in the spring, sounded the alarm on a major drop in motivation caused mainly by the current situation. Fortunately, respondents are much more optimistic than in the spring.
The Academos organization today unveils the results of a survey which shows that the COVID-19 pandemic and the closure of schools have led to a significant drop in the academic motivation of students in Quebec.
Academos launched the third edition of its digital campaign “Vinegar + baking soda, and other more explosive formulas” to demystify careers in life sciences and health while connecting young people with the world of work through virtual mentoring.
Academos launched on October 10 the second edition of the Breathtaking Professions web campaign, the objective of which is to introduce young people to vocational training (VET) professions while connecting them with the world of work.
