Commit to our youth!

Participating in the event is a guarantee of success because since 2008, the problems of consumption among young people decreased from 12% to 10%!

Interactive Auction

Back in November 2017

Why give

The amount raised will be used to raise awareness among 60 000 Quebec adolescents on the risks associated with alcohol and drug use through our alcohol and drugs prevention workshop in schools.

Since 2008, we have invested more than $2,500,000 in our prevention workshop which allowed us to meet more than 270,000 secondary one teenagers.

The Grand Festin d’huîtres contributes greatly to the deployment of this workshop!

Buying drugs.... easier then we think! (french video only)

One afternoon, six neighborhoods, four teenagers… They accepted to participate in this video for the Fondation Jean Lapointe and tried to buy drugs on the street. The goal? Make parents aware of how easy it is to buy drugs, no matter the neighborhood.
