The focus of Equity in Education (EiE) was to improve educational outcomes for youth with vulnerabilities living in low-income neighborhoods in Ottawa by providing coordinated, wrap around supports directly to students and their families in three pilot communities; and working at a systems-level by providing stakeholders in multiple sectors with mechanisms for shared learning, promotion, and collaboration. In order to achieve these objectives, three Student Parent Support Workers (SPSWs) were hired to work with youth in three communities in Ottawa.
