A socio-professional reintegration project
Intervention through nature and adventure
The Vallée Bras-du-Nord Cooperative's Projet en Marche is an innovative initiative to help young adults in difficulty. By offering a working environment in nature, the program enables participants to develop patience, tolerance, rigor, teamwork, determination and perseverance, while building and maintaining the valley's trail network.
Our Coop's mission is both social and environmental, which has enabled us to develop a unique and innovative expertise in nature and adventure intervention.
The success of this approach is indisputable: for over 20 years, some 300 young people have taken part in the construction and maintenance of Vallée Bras-du-Nord trails through Projet En marche. Of these, 75% have returned to the job market or gone back to school.
In fact, our expertise has been recognized over the years: in 2018, the Prix Reconnaissance Jeunesse was awarded to the Project's head coordinator, Etienne Beaumont, for his involvement with customers in difficulty.
The cooperative's team is frequently called upon to give talks on its approach to intervention through nature and adventure, and the impressive results it has achieved over the years.
