Chantiers jeunesse (CJ) is a non-profit organization founded in 1980. At first for volunteers from QuÃ©bec on projects in QuÃ©bec only, international exchanges were rapidly developed with French and Belgian organizations. In the 80's, international exchanges were realised almost exclusively with those two countries. Since 1992, Chantiers jeunesse increased gradually its international activities and diversified the number of partner organizations to increase the number of exchange countries. We co-operate with about 50 organisations spread in more than 30 different countries. Each year, we are sending about 200 volunteers abroad and welcoming about 200 volunteers from abroad and from Quebec on our projects.
Chantiers jeunesse is a non-profit and non-governmental organization aiming to the development of active and involved young citizen, to support local development and to support the development of the entire potential of the persons. We offer learning and training opportunities in collaboration with partners from here and abroad, based on solidarity and respect of differences.
In addition of fulfilling these above mentioned goals, the objectives of the international exchanges program are to incite social involvement and encourage intercultural communication and understanding between people from different countries and cultures.
Chantiers jeunesse organizes voluntary work projects. These projects take place in QuÃ©bec.
