    Le Tandem Community Social Pediatrics Centre is very honoured to have been chosen by the Croquarium organization to set in motion the following pilot project:

    «Young Entrepreneurs Garden»

  • Le Tandem aimed at offering a complete gardening immersion, from the land to the markets, for one summer, for 15 teenagers attending its centre. This project allowed the development of a gardening plan up until the harvest and the sale of products at the region’s public markets. The children were accompanied in all stages of production and food processing, in addition to discovering new aspects of the agri-food business. Through workshops, farm visits and meetings with people in the industry, they became aware of the importance of eating healthy and local while developing their food autonomy, their entrepreneurial spirit and their sense of belonging to their community.

  • Le Tandem’s mission is to support children who are living in vulnerable circumstances, in order to give them the help they need to better their health and to reach their full potential. This YEG project is very mobilizing and puts young people at the heart of the action and at the heart of change.

    The centre wishes to increase its proposal of long-lasting strategic projects. Consequently, this gardening project is an additional tool that will help the children in their social, entrepreneurial and environmental development. In short, our main priority remains the overall development and fulfillment of the children, no matter what shape or size the gardening project takes.

    For the past 5 weeks, youngsters have been getting together to develop their script as part of the “Never Without my Helmet” group, a workshop led by our clinical nurse, Jade Desrosiers.
    This week, they were able to participate in the filming of their creation in order to promote awareness amongst teenagers, showing them the importance of respecting their limits. Sometimes teenagers like to impress and can push their limits a little too far and take unnecessary risks that can jeopardize their health and lives. Thank you to Antoine Denis, director @productionsiris for his involvement.

  • New family visit at Villa Pierrot on March 2nd. Many of them were there to meet some of our staff: Virginie, Psychoeducator, Katerine, Social Worker and Érika-May, Zooherapist!

    We intend to repeat this activity again and again!

  • Le Tandem visits Villa Pierrot!

    One of our Tandem duo, Frédérik – Occupational Therapist, and Virginie – Psychoeducator, meet the mothers and their children. It’s the perfect opportunity to get to know each other by playing and chatting.

  • An interview conducted by Éric Gérard Langlois on November 25th, 2021 on Cogeco’s NousTV program, where Anne-Marie Fournelle, General Manager of Le Tandem, highlights the Sentiers des Droits de l’Enfant on November 20th, 2021 at 9:45am at the Marais de la Rivière aux Cerises.
  • The Tandem and the Society for a World Fit for Children are pleased to cordially invite you to the inauguration of the Children’s Rights Trail on November 20, 2021, at 9:45 a.m. at the Marais de la Rivière aux Cerises.

  • You are invited to come walk with us at the new trail, the Sentier des Droits de l’Enfant at the Marais de la Rivière aux Cerises, on Saturday November 20th, 2021 starting at 9:45 a.m., as part of World’s Children Day which honours Children’s Rights. It’s a great opportunity for a nice family walk, plus drinks and snacks will be served. Come and join us!
  • The Apprentice-Geniuses Group, including 4th to 6th graders, spent some time at Le Tandem 3 times a week to counter the summer learning slide, to have fun and to play while continuing to learn, read and count. Financial assistance was thankfully made possible via the PREE project, paid by the Government of Quebec. Several activities were offered to the kids, including a Rally at the Library. The Club des Débrouillards came to visit twice and the Oeil de Chat-Café Manga stopped by once. It’s awesome!
  • The Club Optimiste Magog-Orford allowed the Apprentice-Geniuses to counter the summer learning slide by purchasing 12 tablets for the kids so they can enjoy reading and writing. Thank you so much! These tablets will soon be useful for homework. Look how focused they are!

    For 7 weeks, kids participating in the Stars Workshop were able to experience various activities such as: cooking, scientific experiments, visit a farm, sailing, dancing, yoga and hike the trails at the Marais de la Rivière aux Cerises. We ended the school year in style! A special thank you to the Club de Voile Memphrémagog, the Marais de la Rivière aux cerises, Imani Drouin from Move and Andréanne Tremblay from Namazé Yoga Studio! It’s thanks to fabulous partners like them that children can experience all these wonderful activities! Happy Summer!
