Our youth

Jeune du Refuge des Jeunes


We welcome youths from everywhere across Québec and Canada. Almost 20% only speak English, and one out of four come from a cultural minority community. 

Most of them are undereducated (grade 9 to 11), in poverty (nearly 50% have no income upon arrival), or face different issues such as drug addiction and physical or mental health problems. Half of the youths have spent time in a youth centre or with a foster family.
