DISE's Jayne Malenfant is La Presse "Personality of the Week"
Published: 12 November 2018
Jayne Malenfant, doctoral student with our Department of Integrated Studies in Education, has been chosen as La Presse's Personality of the Week.
Jayne Malenfant analyzes the barriers faced by precariously housed youth, at school and in the labour market, to promote innovative and equitable participation in the future global economy. Under the supervision of Professor Naomi Nichols, Malenfant's doctoral research explores educational access for youth experiencing homelessness in the context of precarious labour markets, with a focus on youth activism and autonomy. Her project will provide an empirical investigation of the policy and institutional factors which enable/constrain the educational participation of precariously housed youth.
