The Fondation des jeunes de la DPJ: an essential ally in opening up a field of possibilities

Too often defined by prejudices, the young people of the DYP don’t allow themselves to step outside of their reality which they wrongly perceive as normal.

Our mission,
Our promise

The Fondation des jeunes de la DPJ’s mission is to change how youths in care see their future by giving them the courage and confidence to believe in a world of possibilities.

In addition to advocating for the Quebec youths in need of protection, the Foundation engages the public and supplements government funding to quickly meet specific, individual needs.


In a context where inequalities are obvious, acting collectively for the benefit of the most vulnerable is the best way to contribute to their wellbeing.
We believe that with the right support and with a healthy dose of motivation, courage and resilience, it is possible to turn the impossible into reality.
We strive to understand the thoughts, emotions, and aspirations of those around us.
Mutual aid
We value mutual aid and the desire to contribute to the well-being of others.
