What do we do every day as a trusted ally to the youth?
We offer a diverse and supportive space that is adapted to the specific needs of the individual. To achieve this we work with:
A professional support service that has a dedicated and experienced intervention team, and is available on various platforms.
A self-help community and place for young people to share their thoughts and feelings.
Workshops for the classroom on sexuality, relationships, mental health, and seeking help.
Accurate and relevant educational content on all our platforms.
We sometimes don’t feel comfortable talking to our parents about our problems, and that’s ok! Thanks to Tel-jeunes, I know I can write to someone who will be able to help me when I need it. They always take the time to understand what I’m going through and help me find solutions. It feels so incredibly good to have that. It is a huge weight off of my shoulders. Tel-jeunes has mostly helped me try and figure out my sexuality and how to deal with my anxiety, and for that I am forever grateful. Today this is why when I have free time, I too want to help young people.

I learned that my kid was taking drugs and had possibly lied to me about it. The counsellor at Tel-jeunes took the time to listen to me and gave me concrete tips to help me talk to my son about it. In that moment, I needed reassurance and guidance and Tel-jeunes gave me just that.
