A WEST ISLAND DROP-IN CENTER OFFERING ACTIVITIES TO YOUTH. MDJ PIERREFONDS IS HERE FOR YOU.
WHEN I WAS A TEEN…
• I enjoyed discussing issues that mattered to me
• A girl in my high school committed suicide
• I just wanted someone to listen
• My friend dropped out of school
• My brother did a lot of drugs
• I felt like i didn't fit in
• My neighbour's father was abusive
• My friends and i needed a place to hang
WHEN I WAS A TEEN, I NEEDED A PLACE LIKE MDJ.
