WHAT IS IT?
Créneau carrefour jeunesse is a new program from the Secrétariat à la jeunesse put in place by the carrefours jeunesse-emploi (CJE), aimed at promoting academic perseverance, personal and social autonomy, as well as youth participation in entrepreneurship, volunteer and humanitarian work.

of skills and the adoption of behaviours contributing to the development of youth's
autonomy, both personally and socially. It is geared to youth ages 16 to 35 who are
experiencing significant personal, social integration or professional difficulties.
Entrepreneurship: this component is aimed at creating a maximum of
opportunities for youth to participate in entrepreneurial projects which are concrete
experiences that will contribute to the development of an entrepreneurial culture.
It is geared for youth in cycle 2 of a secondary school.
Volunteer work: this component is aimed at increasing opportunities for youth to get involved in their community by participating in volunteer projects related to the objectives of the Politique québécoise de la jeunesse. It is geared for youth in cycle 2 of a secondary school.
