"Journée passionnée" - Careers in the Arts - Friday, November 13, 2015

Du Parc YMCA - November 10 2015

The Du Parc YMCA will hold its first "Journée passionnée". The theme day is: Careers in the Arts. The "Journées passionnées" are four theme days being held throughout the year to help meet the needs and interests of four different types of teens: artistic, athletic, hands-on and techy.

  • Date: Friday, November 13, 2015
  • Time: 4 to 8 p.m.
  • Open to all ages!

Choosing a career can be stressful for some teens. We believe that it’s our responsibility to broaden their horizons, provide them with as many tools as possible, help them discover new careers and introduce them to people who are passionate about their work.

What to expect:

The event will be held as a career fair, where teens will be able to visit different kiosks and interact with professionals and/or people passionate about art. It will also be an opportunity for them to participate in the creation of a group art project, a photo shoot and in many other art-based activities.

To help make this day complete, representatives from the Cégep du Vieux-Montréal, Cégep de Saint-Laurent, Carrefour Jeunesse-Emploi, Drop In and many other organizations will also be on hand to present their various programs and provide young people with guidance.
