Our ambassadors

Tel-jeunes has created new and innovative ways to meet teens’ needs and adapt to their realities. The findings are clear: more than ever, teens need to feel understood and validated, and to recognize themselves in young role models. That's why Tel-jeunes has partnered with inspiring individuals throughout the year.

Six Ambassadors Who Speak to Young People Directly

Tel-jeunes’ Ambassador Program’s goal is to democratize sensitive topics and questions that come up during adolescence. Throughout the year and through original content, our ambassadors will talk about their experiences, the questions they may have had when they themselves were youths, and the resources that helped them. Our goal is to remind young people that they are not the only ones going through this period of questioning, and that they have various accessible and free resources that offer support, including Tel-jeunes.

The six Tel-jeunes ambassadors are influential social media personalities who:

Represent Tel-jeunes' values, such as inclusion, diversity, authenticity, and acting with kindness.

Speak about Tel-jeunes throughout the year to let their community know about us, offer them support, or help them find ways to support others.

Embody or shed light on diversity in multiple forms (sexual and gender diversity, ethnocultural diversity, backgrounds).

Are comfortable opening up to their community and speaking about issues that affect young people.
