About the Foundation

Our youth Foundation raises awareness to prevent psychological distress

Our history

Our mission at Fondation Jeunes en Tête is aimed at preventing psychological distress in Quebec youth aged 11 to 18.

We accomplish this mission by reaching out to teens in schools through our Partners for Life program and by supporting recognized community organizations and Canadian mental health charities that complement our work. We also create synergy among those who work with youth, in order to maximize our joint impact on young people.
