FECRE uses an Ecological Systems Theory approach in which children develop through interactions with their immediate communities. The FECRE approach seeks to heighten the effects of existing protective factors within the community.
Research conducted in underprivileged elementary schools shows that FECRE increased the adoption of positive attitudes, from both school staff and parents, with respect to communication, participation in school activities, and established partnerships.
Type of intervention: Universal prevention
Description de l’action
The Une école et son quartier en santé project applies the Healthy Schools approach of the Québec ministry of education. The program starts with a multi-sector partnership process in underprivileged areas in which partners focus on the well-being of youth and their families.
Statistics show that youth who attend schools which implement the program are more successful. In addition, school staff are more effective in taking preventive action, and parents and community organizations are more engaged with students and with community life.
Type d’intervention : Universal prevention and targeted prevention
