Entrepreneurship projects

Our new Entrepreneurship Projects program gives volunteers the chance to improve their leadership and entrepreneurial skills by developing and implementing their own projects from start to finish.

Seven of our volunteers have agreed to be filmed during their journey by a group of film students from Collège de Maisonneuve. We would like to thank Collège de Maisonneuve and more specifically, Stéphanie Boutin et Karine Glorieux, for their openness and trust. Thanks to all volunteers and students for making this possible.
