Every year on September 23, the Day of Combating the Non-Completion of Secondary School Children is celebrated. The birthplace of this holiday is France, where it was first celebrated in 2008 at the initiative of the AFEV organization.
The Afev is a recognized national association of general interest since 1991 which mobilizes thousands of students each year to support young people with learning difficulties and create links in working-class neighborhoods. By fighting against educational and social inequalities, they act for a fairer and more united society through 3 programs: student mentoring, volunteering in Civic Service dedicated to educational actions and shared accommodation for solidarity projects (KAPS). Present in 350 neighborhoods, organizing more than a million hours of solidarity commitment per year, Afev has become the leading student intervention network in working-class neighborhoods.
