In a complex and changing context, a company strengthens its continuity with the power of its founding story. It's best when they share values through concrete action and collaboration involving both employees and stakeholders.
Experiences of Giving Back
Associate member of the Michaëlle Jean Foundation
L’art pour agir. L’art pour changer.
La Fondation Michaëlle Jean Foundation est une organisation nationale sans but lucratif. Son modèle d’intervention unique s’appuie sur l’impact collectif et le pouvoir d'amener des jeunes, en difficulté ou en situation d’exclusion, à exprimer par les arts leur créativité pour transformer leur vie et revitaliser leur communauté. Des milliers de jeunes Canadiennes et Canadiens ont ainsi démontré leurs capacités de faire appel aux arts pour mettre en œuvre des solutions nouvelles et résoudre des situations accablantes. Ces jeunes leaders prouvent que les arts peuvent sauver des vies et produire de l’espoir dans des communautés aux prises avec l’extrémisme violent, des hauts taux de délinquance, d’incarcérations juvéniles et de suicides.
Honorary President of the YOUNUS Academy, tutoring with sports and educational activities - Bordeaux and Grigny - France
"In 2018, during an evening organized by Bordeaux Mécènes Solidaire, you donated to benefit our association, the Younus Academy. The next day, you called me to express your interest in our initiatives as well as for us to meet. We immediately hit it off and have been connected ever since. For months, you provided us with your support, your advice, your experience and above all your joie de vivre. You spoke to your network about the Younus Academy, and you invited us immediately to present our initiatives at events. After a few months, without a doubt, we offered you to preside the association, which you accepted without hesitation. It is to our greatest satisfaction!
Thank you, my friend. Enthusiastic, generous and visionary!”
