Since 2010, the Léger Foundation’s program Youth Citizen in Action (YCA) has offered grants to CEGEP students who wish to engage in citizen action and the fight to overcome poverty in Quebec and abroad. Most of these projects were carried out within the framework of courses supervised by their collegiate institution over a period ranging from days to months.

We are currently rethinking the YCA program format to encourage even greater long-term youth engagement and impact. This transition period will allow us to propose a stronger youth engagement program that will have a greater impact on the future of our young participants. Be sure that we will keep you informed of the progress of the program and how you will be able to participate.

For further information, do not hesitate to call us if necessary. The person to reach for the YCA program is :
