Youth citizenship impact is an initiative which offers the opportunity for young people from all over Quebec to go deeper on their engagement path by putting to action projects which positively impacts their communities. You have until October 18th, 2020 at midnight to submit a project.

This call invites young people to organize awareness-raising activities on one of two specific themes: diversity and inclusion or reconciliation with indigenous peoples.

Young people can organize debates, discussion or awareness workshops, meetings with experts, conferences, ideation workshops and much more!

The objectives are:
