Welcome to PJICI
The Programme Jeunesse Ici Corp
The PJICI is a not-for-profit organization with a mandate in employment assistance for new immigrants youth, and refugees who lack the necessary work experience, knowledge, and cultural familiarity in order to obtain steady employment in Manitoba. We stimulate, encourage, support and coordinate integration. PJICI accomplishes its objectives by focusing on the value-added benefits of bilingualism as well as by initiating projects in four (4) core sectors; struggle against poverty, youth integration, education, and crime prevention.
Principle PJICI activities include offering bilingual services to the community as well as coordinating cultural and socio-economical development projects with communities, youth groups, immigrants, refugees, and individuals.
The project belief that bilingualism is a value added commodity. This belief is shared by its private funders, members, and volunteers.
The proposed program is part of PJICI’s youth integration strategy, which is responsible for developing a working culture in English and French speaking youth as well as for providing them with the skills and knowledge they need in order to be integrated into the province’s workforce. In collaboration with local businesses and partner agencies, PJICI has developed a program that helps young immigrants develop marketable skills and assists them in finding and retaining steady employment in Manitoba.
