Chantiers jeunesse – Closing 3 programs

It is with a heavy heart that we announce an indefinite interruption of our Intercultural projects in Canada, Social Entrepreneurship Projects and International Projects programs: The grants awarded by Canada Service Corps have not been renewed for the year 2023-2024.

It is also with regret that we have lost exemplary employees who believed in the mission of Chantiers Jeunesse, which was to promote the development of active and committed young citizens by allowing them to contribute to the improvement of a community’s living environment and thus develop their potential and skills while discovering a new country or region.

Now with only 8 employees, Chantiers Jeunesse is taking on the challenge of building a new program granted by Canada Service Corps, called Social Impact Accelerator Program (SIAP), which offers former Canada Service Corps volunteers between the ages of 15 and 30 a micro-grant of up to $5,000 and coaching geared towards the start-up of new projects in the area of service and citizen participation the growth and sustainability of projects already underway. This program was designed to increase the entrepreneurial skills of young people and to develop long-term projects.

We warmly thank all the employees, the volunteers, the hosting partners, the animation team and the people who believed and continue to believe in the mission of Chantiers Jeunesse.

To support the mission of Chantiers jeunesse, you can also make a donation.
