School-Family-Community Project Expands

About this project

In Saint-Léonard, the CIP is supporting the development of the School-Family-Community project. This pilot project aims to improve the social and community fabric for immigrant parents so that they can play a full role in their child’s academic success.

In recent years, the School-Family-Community project has already been established in several Montreal neighbourhoods, including Saint-Léonard. The CIP has enabled stakeholders in Saint-Léonard to review and revitalize their collaboration model with the support and commitment of Montreal Hooked on School and the Commission scolaire de la Pointe-de-l’Île (CSPI).

The results have been so conclusive that the project has expanded to all schools in Montreal’s east end. Inspired by some particularly innovative aspects of the model developed by Saint-Léonard stakeholders, the Commission scolaire de la Pointe-de-l’Île (CSPI) has consulted with them as part of a government measure to implement this model in Anjou, Montréal-Nord, Pointe-aux-Trembles and Rivière-des-Prairies in collaboration with local agencies. Two community agencies recognized for their expertise and ability to work together will be the driving forces behind the project: Accueil aux immigrants de l’Est de Montréal and the YMCA du Québec.
