An award celebrating Quebec youth organizations that stand out

Awarded by Fondation Jeunes en Tête, the Prix Inspiration recognizes the actions of youth aid organizations that are financed by the Foundation and that work in the Quebec City and eastern Quebec City area.

Awarded each year at the Bal du maire de Québec, the winner is chosen for:

  • their excellence in management, their entrepreneurial spirit and innovative projects
  • their involvement and the impact their programs have on youth from at-risk environments

Thanks to these community partners, new strategies and effective actions are implemented to help youth in difficulty and improve their well-being.

The jury

The jury

A jury that is independent from the Foundation assesses the quality of the projects presented, basing its findings on the organizations’ credibility, sound management and impact of their projects on young people.

Skillfully chaired by Jean-Paul Gagné, Editor Emeritus at Les Affaires, the jury is made up of Édith Boulianne, Lise Lapierre, Bruno Déry and André Marceau.
