About Youth Impact Jeunesse

Youth Impact Jeunesse (formerly Moncton Youth Residences) was established in 1985 as a charitable organization. Since its inception, YIJ has experienced considerable growth and diversification as it effectively responds to community needs. YIJ inspires youth to move forward to a successful life by investing skills, time and energy into their transition. YIJ empowers youth to make effective choices that give them enhanced control over their futures.

Our goal from Ride for Refuge is to raise $25,000 for Youth QUEST Central, a drop-in centre for at-risk and homeless youth. Here they can access basic services such as laundry, shower, food and clothing or get connected to other on-site programs to assist with education, employment, housing and more.

Ride with us on October 5th!
