Chantiers jeunesse has been going strong for 40 years, giving young people the chance to reach their full potential while giving back to the community.

Over the years, more than 10,000 youth, camp leaders, staff members and volunteers have shaped our history by building inspiring volunteer projects, partnerships and, above all, friendships.

We’ll be celebrating these achievements all year long and we want you to join us! Follow us on Facebook and Instagram to share your memories with a #TBThursday, give a shout out or view our virtual timeline to discover or relive special moments. Stay tuned for our online celebration and other surprises!
