In September participate in the collection of the Saint-Sulpice Hotel Montreal dedicated to New Pathways Foundation.
For this new monthly collection with its green program, Le Saint-Sulpice Hotel Montreal is partnering with the New Pathways Foundation. Three months ago we launched the Green Program, which aims to raise funds for organizations and foundations chosen by hotel staff. An original way to build a better world in line with the values of our company.
In addition to financial support for this organization, guests also contribute to the protection of the environment by reducing their ecological footprint.
Each month, we invite all hotel guests to refuse the housekeeping service during their stay of 2 nights or more, in order to contribute $5/day of refusal to the monthly collection.
With September 30, the National Day of Truth and Reconciliation, we also wanted to highlight this important event in our society by devoting our monthly fundraising to the New Pathways Foundation.
New Pathways Foundation Mission
Their mission consist in engaging and supporting First Nations youth in Quebec in their wellness, their individual and collective development and their fulfillment.
To do this, the New Pathways Foundation has developed numerous initiatives:
- The Foundation Camps: Since 2014, the Foundation has enabled young people from all over the Quebec to experiment camps in order to accompany them with positive and meaningful experiences through workshops in cooperation, sports, theater, culture, etc.
- BECOME Internships: The BECOME observation internships are intended for young people in Secondary 3, 4
and 5 to explore jobs, discover resources in urban areas and support at a decisive moment in their life in order to encourage
them to continue their educational path.
- NISKA initiatives: Niska supports local organizations in the planning and development of physical and sports activities-initiation, recreation, competition or excellence. The New Pathways Foundation wants to give young First Nations members the opportunity to explore various possibilities for activities and, possibly, to continue their journey within a sport.
- Desjardins Foundation Scolarship: School perseverance scholarships are offered to secondary school students to promote school perseverance. A scholarship is intended to support the purchase of material resources or services that meet a specific need in order to support young people in obtaining their first diploma.
- Social innovation laboratory: The Foundation wants to continue developing its initiatives in a context of continuous improvement within a social innovation laboratory with an impact on First Nations youth in Quebec.
The Laboratory will bring together several stakeholders concerned in different spheres of First Nations youth development (young people, actors in the health and education sectors of First Nations in Quebec, stakeholders, researchers from academia, psychologists, elders, etc.). The Laboratory’s work will make it possible to target the development orientations that will meet the needs and aspirations of First Nations youth in Quebec.
