Head & Hands envisions a society where all youth are participants and are inspired by the endless possibilities available to them. Our mission is to work with youth to promote their physical and mental wellbeing. Our approach is preventative, non-judgmental, and holistic with a fundamental commitment to providing an environment that welcomes youth without discrimination. We facilitate social change and the empowerment of youth based on their current needs within our community and society at large.
About Jeunesse 2000 (J2K)
Jeunesse 2000 is a satellite program of Head & Hands. J2K is a non-judgmental and welcoming drop-in centre that caters to Montreal youth between the ages of 12 and 17 years old. Offered in collaboration with the City of Montreal, this is a place where youth can be themselves: chill, play sports, cook, play video games, watch movies, take part in our music workshops, or sing and rap in our studio, all free of charge, all year long. It’s the spot to be!
