About Us

The Organization

F.A.C.E.S. empowers youth by fostering a community of support. Our network seeks to instill young people with confidence in their unique identities and abilities, while providing safe environments to learn and grow.

Our primary objective is the healthy growth and development of every young person who comes through our doors. We aim to address the unique individual needs of youth in our community. Whether those needs are to develop social skills, life skills, work skills, or self-esteem, we work with each youth where they are at. This is done by applying a collective, unified approach to all our programs and services that inspires youth empowerment.

We are a non-profit governed by a volunteer board of directors, and our programs and services are designed and delivered by dedicated professionals. Engagement of caring community volunteers, partners and supporters helps us to accomplish our mandate. Without them, none of this would be possible.

It is our hope that those who complete our programs will in turn “pay it forward” by returning to volunteer and become role models and mentors for other participants.

In Quebec, one out of five girls, and shockingly, one out of three boys, quit school before they graduate

Youth who are left unsupported – lacking role models, employment opportunities, educational options – frequently become a cost to society.

Providing support now could prevent these young people from becoming homeless adults and sinking permanently into a costly cycle of homelessness and dependence on the government.

F.A.C.E.S. Inc. is a non-profit organization devoted to inspiring and supporting vulnerable youth to a better future by providing them with the opportunity to control their own destiny.

PROGRAMS

We want to believe that someone is teaching our children how to communicate effectively. How to make informed decisions – and set goals.
But who?
The truth is, if kids don’t learn life skills in school, they may not learn them at all.

The curriculum is made up of life skills and Job Skills lessons that provide the tools to meet the social and emotional needs of our youth while also teaching them practical skills.

Lesson topics include:

  • GOAL SETTING
  • DECISION MAKING
  • COMMUNICATION
  • TEAMWORK
  • CAREER READINESS
  • CONFLICT RESOLUTION
  • EMPATHY
  • PROBLEM-SOLVING
  • CONFIDENCE BUILDING
