About CJE NDG
The CJE NDG promotes the socio-professional integration of individuals aged 16 and over by offering them personalized support, enhanced by the expertise and enthusiasm of our multidisciplinary and multilingual team. We develop innovative projects that are focused on the specific needs of our clients. We strive to ensure the success of our participants in the labour market, particularly by helping them return to school and providing them with the appropriate tools for their personal development.
The Carrefour Jeunesse-Emploi NDG, known today by its acronym CJE NDG, was founded in 1998. We are a non-profit organization that works primarily with young people aged 16 to 35 living in the Notre-Dame-de-Grâce, Côte Saint-Luc, Hampstead and Montreal West neighbourhoods. Over the years, thanks to the resourcefulness of our team and the support of many organizations, including recurrent government grants we have expanded our services to include entrepreneurship programs, employment integration for newcomers, international projects and, as of 2011, a wide range of services offered to those 35 and over. In two decades, our services have benefitted more than 15,000 people! All of our services and projects follow a holistic approach and are part of a continuum that helps our clients develop key skills that can be successfully applied in the labour market.
