The 14th edition of the Soirée Tel-jeunes was held on November 27, 2019 at Entrepôts Dominion in Montréal. Uni-Select, an active supporter of the Fondation Tel-jeunes for the past 13 years, contributed again this year as Main Partner and Presenter of the event.
Bringing together 250 members of the Montreal business community, the 2019 Soirée Tel-jeunes was a true success and raised more than $104,225 to ensure the sustainability of Tel-jeunes and the pursuit of its mission.
As Honorary President for the event, Eric Bussières, Senior Vice-President and Chief Financial Officer of Uni-Select Inc., praised the values that characterize Tel-jeunes, as well as the exceptional work done by the Fondation Tel-jeunes’ team: "Young people are tomorrow's decision makers and it is up to us to make sure they have the resources, tools and coaching they need to succeed in our future society. The front-line services that Tel-jeunes offers are some of these invaluable resources that we, as a society, must continue to support with conviction.”
Established in 2009, Fondation Tel-jeunes supports front-line professional help services. Each year, Tel-jeunes helps some 50,000 young people and 14,000 parents across Quebec. For almost 30 years, Tel-jeunes and Ligne Parents have been offering 24/7 assistance, support and information, by phone, internet and text messages.
