Ages 16 to 29

Jeunes volontaires, an Emploi-Québec initiative, fosters the acquisition of skills through the completion of an individual or group project. Whether the participant is interested in pursuing an original idea, starting a business or working for themselves, this is an excellent professional experience that requires entrepreneurial initiative.

Who can participate in this program?

  • Youth ages 16 to 29 who are having difficulty finding a job;
  • Who are not in full-time studies or employed full-time;
  • Who are willing to dedicate 20 hours to the completion of their project.

If this initiative interests you, visit your local CJE or the Quebec Services Office of your MRC in order to verify your eligibility.

Pending board approval and depending on the type of project, there is a possibility for funding and reimbursement of certain expenses directly related to the project. This could include childcare, transportation or training costs.
