Mission: Chantiers jeunesse is a non-profit organization created in 1980 to promote the development of young and engaged citizens between the ages of 15 and 30. It allows youth to increase their potential and gain new skills while helping a local community better their living environment. They also get to discover a new region in Canada or a new country (more than 35). These projects are made possible with local and international partners who encourage harmony and diversity. Chantiers jeunesse provides different ways for youth to involve themselves and increase their potential!
