The Chelsea Youth Coop (CYC);
a program beyond your expectations!

 

Brief history:

Since 1990, the Youth Coops have been present all over Quebec's territory. It was Coordinated by the Réseau de la coopération du travail du Québec since its beginning.  In 2015, La Fabrique entrepreneuriale took over the coordination of the Youth Coop project. The project has grown due especially to the support of the cooperative movement and a great amount of national, regional and local partners.

The salaries of over 150 Youth Coop Facilitators, as well as an important part of their training, are undertook by a grant program called “Fonds étudiant solidarité travail du Québec II”.

What is a Youth Coop

A Youth Coop is made up of 15 youths of 13 to 17 years old who come together to get a useful knowledge combined with a hands-on experience that will be priceless and useful for them when they will be joining the real job market in a near future.

 

For teenagers residents, it is:

·         a great opportunity to gain work experience

·         a way to learn how to create their own business

·         a way to participate in cooperative management

·         a way to better know their community

·         a way to help them develop their own identity

·         a place to have a significant fulfilling and challenging group experience!


The young coop workers are followed by leaders and have the support of community stakeholders.

 

For residents it is a way to:

·         Get to know some motivated young residents who are willing learn new skills

·         Help teenagers to assert their abilities and to offer their services to their community.

·         Have an opportunity to get services for some light works or assistance to it at very reasonable prices.

By choosing CYC services you contribute in:

• the promotion of early learning in entrepreneurship
• personal and ability development of youths of your community;
• providing a first and exceptional experience in a professional work environment
• offering them a chance to participate concretely in the operation of a cooperative association;
• giving youth the chance to create their own employment and serve their community;
• the opportunity for the community to receive services for light work at very reasonable prices.

 

By using the Youth Coop services, you help the youths of your community to grow and discover their potential for when they will integrate the real job market. So, you help them to get prepared for that significant change in their life.

The Chelsea Youth Coop’s Local Committee consists of volunteers getting involved and believing the benefits of that program. For the young coop workers and members, the Youth Coop facilitators have a role of:

·         Advisors
·         Reference resource
·         Guidance
·         Facilitators

The Coop Facilitators put together all the elements required to get the program going each year. To achieve that the Chelsea Youth Coop’s Local Committee is constantly looking for volunteers and funds in order to keep this wonderful training program in place each summer.
