The goal of the Future to Discover Pilot Project is to develop evidence about what works to improve access to post-secondary education for young Canadians. It tests the effectiveness of two interventions: Explore Your Horizons, which has been designed to provide high school students with enhanced career education over three years through workshops, a magazine, and a members-only Web site; and Learning Accounts, which promises non-repayable financial aid to students from low-income families.
Explore Your Horizons was implemented in Manitoba (where it was known as Future to Discover) and New Brunswick; Learning Accounts was implemented only in New Brunswick.
