Why Support the Fondation Tel-jeunes?

Because each and every day, Tel-jeunes and LigneParents counselors answer questions like these:

  • “How can I help a friend who’s mutilating herself?”
  • “How can I make real friends?”
  • “I am anorexic and I have suicidal thoughts.”
  • “How can I know what my sexual orientation is?”
  • “Why am I feeling aggressive and depressed?”
  • “I want to help my friend. Her sister tried to commit suicide.”
  • “What can I do with my violent teenager?”
  • “How can I become a good dad?”
  • “I feel terrible because I think I have been a bad mother.”
  • “I am a single mom and I’m at my breaking point.”
Society evolves. Technology changes. And so do we!

Growing alongside them

To be able to pursue its mission, the Fondation Tel-jeunes’ services have to improve their technological platforms to keep up with constantly evolving communications. Our goals are to:

  • Develop and improve our workshop program by continuing to work with helpers in high schools and by becoming a hub of sex education information.
  • Evaluate and offer means of communication with our counselors meeting young people and parents' needs.
  • Produce web and audiovisual contents on the relevant topics for which young people and parents contact us, and be a hub of information on parent-teen relationships.
  • Provide on-going training to our professional counselors so they are always ready to answer new kinds of questions and gain cutting-edge expertise to increase understanding and intervention quality.
