CEDEC has two flagship products designed to support youth entrepreneurship.
CEDEC works with adult learning centres, Cégeps, organizations, service providers and entrepreneurs in communities across Quebec to help young adults between the ages of 18-39 achieve their business dreams. CEDEC’s Youth Start-Up workshops enable youth to take their business ideas and move from intention to action.
CEDEC’s Youth Start-Up Workshops are hands-on, engaging youth in discovering their entrepreneurial qualities and developing soft skills, such as problem solving, planning, leadership and communication. Participants explore their ideas and learn how to access tools and support to develop their project or business.
272 youth engaged
