ABOUT

Founded in 2012, the Jeunes Gouverneurs committee is made up of young professionals interested in getting involved in the cultural community and philanthropy. Their mission is to make the ballet accessible to everyone by creating networking opportunities through fundraising events and campaigns in collaboration with Les Grands Ballets.

The committee was created with the goal of introducing young professionals to fundraising and philanthropy. Through this experience, members gain valuable experience in preparing, implementing and promoting a fundraising event, while developing their skills in seeking funding and creating networking opportunities.

WORD FROM THE CO-PRESIDENTS

Passionate about art and philanthropy, our mission is to make the ballet more accessible for everyone. Our primary role, however, is sharing our love and appreciation in dance. We are continually surpassing ourselves to find new ways to help our peers discover the beauty of this art form.

We are proud to have created a committee of young professionals who share the same enthusiasm towards this cause. We are equally proud to help cultivate excellence in the arts in Montreal by contributing to the promotion of the cultural community and breeding an interest in artistic activities. Our involvement with Les Jeunes Gouverneurs has given us a wonderful opportunity to grow, both professionally and personally.


We would like to thank all of our sponsors and partners, and hope to see you at our upcoming events. Please don’t hesitate to contact us on LinkedIn to chat about art and to find out more details about our upcoming activities.
