Survey Results in Picton Gazette

Greater Than Picton Gazette“The numbers are in when it comes to Prince Edward County‚Äôs youth.

The Greater Than Youth Collective, a group of local youth, youth serving agencies, educators and community organizations organized and fostered by the County Foundation released two years worth of data pertaining to young people in Prince Edward County Wednesday at St. Mary Magdalene Hall in Picton.

The public display featured data collected over a two-part, two year survey exercise that will hopefully lead to a gradual raise in secondary school graduation rates in Prince Edward County.

Utilizing a holistic approach that identifies several support pillars that surround a successful education path, GTCYC are hoping to create a community culture that embraces learning and personal development and enables all youth to reach their potential with the ultimate goal of having secondary school graduations rates on par with the provincial average by 2028.”
