About CENTRE DES JEUNES DE LENNOXVILLE YOUTH CENTER
The Lennoxville Youth Center is a non-profit charitable organization whose primary objective is to meet the needs of young people in our community. Our mission is to encourage these youth to become critical, active and responsible citizens and we facilitate their development by providing a safe, lively and structured environment where they can participate in activities that they themselves have selected and organized. Our desire is to foster among young people a sense of responsibility, autonomy and achievement.
The Center was born in 1986 and our primary objectives remain largely the same to this day – to develop a sense of community among our young people, facilitate the learning of democratic life, encourage autonomy and leadership, better equip them for their life’s journey and develop their capacity to create and maintain interpersonal relationships.
