The Alouettes have been active in Montreal schools since 1998. The players have once visited up to 110 schools, reaching out to over 45,000 students. The Alouettes players involved in the program in the past include Tyrell Sutton, Kristian Matte, Luc Brodeur-Jourdain, Martin Bédard, Philippe Gagnon, Seydou Haidara Jr. and Jean-Samuel Blanc.
Players taking part must first undergo a specific training from specialists in the field of mentoring and counseling in order to be best equipped to help the students. The program’s main goal is to encourage kids to stay in school while focusing on a wide array of challenges that students face today, ranging from bullying and academic performance to peer pressure and the importance of staying active. The players look to inspire and motivate the students they meet to make the right choices and to reach their full potential through hard work and dedication.
Registrations for the 2018 edition of the Together at School with the Alouettes program are now closed.
