The CJE de Francheville services 16 municipalities in central Québec, with two offices; one in Trois-Rivières, and the other in Ste-Geneviève-de-Batiscan.
My own experience with the CJE is a work project of making a mural, for which they bought all the supplies, and provided an area artist, Éric Godin, as a resource person. The were several students from the UQTR, as well as two girls from the Cégep de Trois-Rivières, and a girl who works at Omer DeSerres.
