Poly t'accompagne

Poly t'accompagne is a program that was recently built to offer free tuition and to help struggling high school students. Our mission is to find volunteers at Polytechnique Montréal that are willing to tutor youngsters who have approached organisations for help. Our goal is to allow as many kids as possible to succeed at their studies and pursue higher education because we believe that education is an essential ressource pour the well-being and the prosperity of our communities.
