Youth are an essential part of the vitality of our English-speaking community. Encouraging them to stay or to return to the region is key for the vitality of our community (ESC). We help youth reach their potential via our own projects or through support for partner initiatives. We work closely with Metis Beach School, the only English school in Bas-St-Laurent to help them reach their potential through different projects.

  • Literacy and cultural programming
