A new name!

La Fondation du Centre jeunesse de Montréal has a new name! It is becoming the Fondation des jeunes de la DPJ to better reflect its mission and the immense impact of its actions. While the public system surrounding these young people is undergoing an in-depth reform, the Foundation is focused on challenging and educating the population about the role that everyone can play in supporting these young people. Let’s help them transform their vision of themselves and their future.
