Exploratory trips to the region
Two times per year a cohort of 6-12 people get the chance to spend 3 days in the MRC. The goal of these exploratory trips is to get to know elected representatives and organizations, see the sites, learn information about the job market and entrepreneurial opportunities, visit companies, etc. Transport, meals and activities are provided! In short, it’s a way for our region to entice you, and get you thinking about your future in Haut-Saint-François. Find out when our next trip is!
Discover the region in a day
How about a day of personal exploration! This is a single-day trip with an itinerary adapted to suit the needs of the candidate. This service is often used by participants who have already put their moving plans into motion, or it can be scheduled to coincide with a job interview.
Emails, telephone conversations, follow-ups; get matched with employers or important people in the area… We help participants with all the steps needed for their move, even from a distance!
Our wish at Place aux jeunes is to foster a feeling of belonging among adolescents in the area while contributing to the participant’s knowledge of the territory. It’s for this reason that Place aux jeunes gets involved with its clientele through various activities (career day, HSF Quiz, the Maisons de jeunes’s organized trips) We believe that by helping adolescents get to know their region, they will want to return home after their studies and contribute to their community.
