La fondation

Our mission

To help young people living in Montreal's low-income housing (HLM) to stay in school and develop their full potential.


Our vision

We envision a future where nearly 10,000 young Montrealers from low-income housing projects facing socio-economic challenges have equal opportunities and find their place in the community.

Our values

Our core values guide our actions to accomplish the Foundation’s mission. These values act as our moral contract with the students benefiting from our Foundation’s support, and the moral contract binding us to our partners, donors and volunteers.Together, we work towards the common goal of seeing these youth taste success.



Commitment to diversity, inclusion and equal opportunity.



Commitment to sound management and governance.



A commitment to mutual support, complementarity and consistency of action in the community through strategic partnerships.

Our three
principal actions

Supporting School Perseverance

By encouraging learning on a daily basis and supporting students’ constant efforts in school until they earn their first diploma.

Promoting Initiative and Creativity

By encouraging the development of students’ potential by discovering a passion and by having new and enriching experiences, factors that positively influence their development.

Increasing Pride and Self-Esteem

By promoting self-esteem, confidence, social skills and more, these youth develop and strengthen the personal skills that lead to success.

Our plan

In addition to this new brand image, the Foundation is also booming! With steadily growing financial resources, a first major fundraising campaign, loyal partners and a determined Board of Directors, the Foundation is at a pivotal point in its history. Its objectives and the means it has put in place to increase its commitment to the success of young people living in low-income housing in Montreal are set out in the 2020-2023 strategic plan, a springboard for the future.
