Education is key to breaking the cycle of poverty in our community. La Corde’s programs are constructed around nurturing the physical, mental, social, and spiritual lives of the youth in the center. The mission is simple: provide a support system for the youth within the community to enable them to build a better and more stable future through education and compassion.
La Corde Youth Centre is located in the Cloverdale community of East Pierrefonds. Cloverdale is one of the largest housing co-ops in Canada, represents over 50 nationalities, and has an average drop out age of 14.
The activities offered at la Corde stretch young people out of their reality and provide opportunities for the la Corde team to invest in their character, values, leadership, and spiritual journey. In this way, young people learn to make good life decisions that will shape their future in a positive way.
