Chantiers jeunesse is a non-profit organization created in 1980 to foster the development of young, active, and socially engaged citizens while encouraging community development. Through our projects, young people increase their potential and gain new skills, all while discovering a new country or region. Our initiatives are part of an international trend that proposes finding the pleasure in work.
WHAT WE DO
We organize volunteer projects in different regions of Quebec for young people between the ages of 15 and 30 and support Canadian participants who we’ve placed in international projects (out of the more than 35 possible destinations in Europe, North America and Asia).
Every year, 150 young volunteers get involved in different projects organized by Chantiers jeunesse. All of this is possible thanks to our collaboration with more than 40 international organizations who are also part of the Alliance of European Voluntary Service Organisations.
