School-work balance aims to encourage school perseverance by raising awareness among employers and students of the important of balancing work and school.
We suggest that employers hiring students comply with certain criteria that foster academic achievement (examples: not allocate more than 20 hours of work per week to their student-employees, know their class schedules and exam periods, etc.). Certified employees benefit from visibility, access to grants, conferences, etc. The goal is also to raise awareness among parents and the youth themselves of their responsibility with regards to their academic success.
