The mission of Innovation Youth is to offer a community space for youth living in or frequently visiting downtown, opening up the possibilities of integration into academic, family, and social life. Innovation Youth strives to offer support to youth in downtown Montreal, who are between the ages of 12 and 25. We offer art and cooking workshops as well as homework help and accreditation of some sec. 4 and 5 courses.
A series of creative art workshops are offered by an artist or an animator recruited in partnership with the center. Examples of projects include: screen printing, painting, sculpting, and photography.
Homework supervision and tutoring are essential components to academic success. This service aims to help students master and understand the material seen in the classroom, complete their homework, and equip them with better study habits.
A group of staff, interns, and volunteers are available to help students with their homework.
The specific goal is for youth to implement a healthier lifestyle by adopting good eating habits, demonstrating basic nutritional knowledge, and learning fundamental cooking skills.
INTERVENTION AND PREVENTION
An intervention worker is available to meet with youth, their parents and their school, refer them to appropriate and necessary services, and accompany youth to appointments with medical, professional, or social services.
