Since 2014, Montréal Relève has been working with CISSS Montérégie-Center, Institut Nazareth and Louis-Braille Institute (INLB) and INLB’s En Vue fundation to meet a need for professional exploration of adolescents. and young adults living with a visual impairment.
Thanks to the Career Vision program, there are approximately 15 teenagers and young adults every year who benefit from one week internships in a sector of interest. Internships are tailor-made for participants who use INLB.
Career Vision also allows partner organizations to, within one week, test their integration strategies and become familiar with a pool of potential labor. Click here for the list of internship partners.
Career Vision is made possible thanks to the financial support of En Vue fundation of INLB.
