The Maison des jeunes de Rivière-au-Renard on Friday inaugurated the Espace 18-24 which will serve as a meeting place for this age group in its municipality.
This pilot project, unique in Quebec, which lasts 3 years, perfectly meets the mission of the youth center, which is to allow young people to flourish in a place favorable to their development.
According to the director of the Maison des jeunes and responsible for the community worker component of the MRC de La Côte-de-Gaspé, Raynald Després, this clientele has been forgotten by the system compared to the entire community.
Various stakeholders will be called upon to guide young people according to their needs.
