LOVE (Québec) is a non-profit organization that builds innovative programs to promote the mental, emotional, and social well-being of our youth. We also provide a safe environment free from judgment or criticism to young people who have personally experienced physical and cyberbullying, domestic and/or sexual abuse, hate crimes, as well as suicide ideation and self-harm.
At LOVE, youth are guided to better understand negativity in their lives and to transform their lives through constructive and creative activities. This is a liberating process that allows youth from every cultural and socio-economic background to build self-esteem, confidence and other essential characteristics to become leaders in their communities.
LOVE has a proven track record in reducing violence among high-school-aged youth through media arts and leadership training programs.
About LOVE (QUÉBEC)
LOVE's unique skills-building and educational programs empower youth that have been affected by BULLYING, DRUG AND ALCOHOL ABUSE, SUICIDAL THOUGHTS, PHYSICAL, VERBAL AND SEXUAL ABUSE, SELF-MUTILATION, as well as STREET GANG ACTIVITY, to break the cycle of violence in their lives and in their communities. Our programs are open and available to victims, witnesses and perpetrators of violence.
LOVE's Media Arts Programs begin the process by encouraging the youth to openly document their experiences through photography, writing, journalism and video-making. As the program`s training progresses, youth gain marketable skills and are trained to become community Leaders, delivering messages of non-violence through the LOVE Leadership Program to thousands of youth yearly.
