Together at School is a community outreach program supporting high school students in the Montreal area and surroundings. The Alouettes have been active in Montreal schools since 1998. Players visit over 60 high schools annually reaching out to over 10 000 students every year. The Alouettes players involved in the program include Martin Bédard, Jean-Gabriel Poulin, Luc Brodeur-Jourdain 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.
