Thinking and acting together for the post-secondary transition in Outaouais

The TRAMPO project invites partners from the educational, social and health sectors, as well as young people and adults making the post-secondary transition, to work together to support this transition in Outaouais.

It all
started here.

In 2021, the TEO and the PESO joined forces to create a post-secondary transition project manager position to guide reflection and support partners working on the inter-level continuum of the post-secondary transition in Outaouais. It was also determined that the most vulnerable young people and adults transitioning to post-secondary needed special consideration. The TRAMPO project was launched in the spring of 2022, following the post-COVID return to in-person work.

Assessment of the project

On Thursday, May 18, 2023, at CÉGEP de l’Outaouais’ Café Contraste, we presented the assessment of the TRAMPO project—Thinking and acting for the post-secondary transition—to 60-some partners involved in the work undertaken since 2022.

Experiences were shared by members of the community of practice, composed of professionals, the group of young people in post-secondary transition, as well as colleagues carrying out TRAMPO project (research project, parents’ group).

TRAMPO Recommendations

Following the reflection exercise in May 2023, a new, more refined version of the TRAMPO recommendations was produced:

Several partners supporting the post-secondary transition in Outaouais took a variety of actions to apply these recommendations.

TRAMPO project

Since one of its objectives is to act together, the broad TRAMPO project has given rise to other projects, through partner collaborations. Each project tackles a considerable concern shared by several partners and addressed in the recommendations (see the “Assessment of the project” section).

To come...



“It became clear to me that I had to do more and better to make parents feel welcome. We were overlooking them a lot in my organization, and this raised issues with my work team.“
“I discovered that I had a lot of choices and possibilities that I hadn’t thought of, for my life and for my studies. It’s important to innovate, to not be afraid of making mistakes and to let young people take the lead.” (youth group participant).“
“Over the months, I’ve gradually changed the way I approach and talk to young people. I now ask myself how I can offer services that are more meaningful for the students.”
“I often worked in silos and didn’t know the others. I stepped out of my comfort zone within TRAMPO and I’m so pleased with what I’ve learned and the human connections I’ve developed.”
“It made me realize how interconnected we all are. To find solutions to problems, we really have to work together!”
