I strongly believe that young men and women play an important role in our society in terms of helping our culture and values grow. So for me, these young men and women represent the future. They’re who influence us and lead us down new paths. What I love about the foundation is that we have big ambitions; we want to have a direct impact on our youth’s mental health.
How do you think COVID-19 has impacted this? The damages are huge. La Fondation Jeunes en Tête intervenes by directly reaching out to them. During the crisis, we managed to revisit the way we do things, even if we couldn’t visit schools. We needed to maintain contact with these young men and women and help guide them towards solutions.
No matter what role I’m playing, people are what matter most. I was born in Gaspésie, in one of the poorest regions in Canada, but a region that’s rich in humanity and good values.
Some of the negative impacts will be felt for years to come. Our youth will need to learn to deal with that. La Fondation Jeunes en Tête focuses on prevention and tries to go about it in a positive manner.
