Pleins Rayons is constantly innovating as it seeks to offer quality services and activities for its apprentices. Also, each project has a positive environmental impact in the region through the recycling of material (bikes, wood, clothing, fabric, metal, etc.). For example, our bird house making project has made it easier for farmers to attract insectivorous birds.X
Meaningful projects give the apprentices the opportunity to gain practical socio-professional skills. The approach enables to build upon each apprentice acquired knowledge and strengths by aiming self-fulfillment through social inclusion or hiring. The apprentices can also express their creativity through our various services, helping projects, and items creation or restauration for our community.X
