Licensed to Learn (L2L) is an IDRF project that supports Canadian children and youth in need of educational support.
A registered charitable organization, L2L’s goal is to make academic support accessible to all Canadian students, by empowering young leaders through tutor training, and implementing free peer-tutor programming in schools nationwide.

The Situation

  • Almost 20% of Canadian children and youth live in poverty.
  • Evidence shows students from low-income households are disadvantaged in the Canadian education system through to post-secondary training
  • Only 31% of youth from the bottom income quartile attend post-secondary education, compared to 50.2% from the top quartile.
  • Academic support and educational opportunities need to be more accessible to help all students achieve their full potential.”
