3. The mission of the agency, to the extent and subject to the conditions determined by the Minister, is to develop relations between young people from all regions of Québec as well as relations between these young people and those from the other provinces and territories of Canada, from the Communauté française de Belgique, from the Americas and from other jurisdictions and countries identified by the Minister that are not under the purview of the Office franco-québécois pour la jeunesse. The goal of developing such relations between young people is to promote mutual understanding of their respective cultures, increase exchanges between individuals and groups and encourage the development of networks.
More specifically, the agency is to establish contacts with public or private organizations in the jurisdictions and countries referred to in the first paragraph for the purpose of developing, in partnership with those organizations, mobility programs that include financial assistance measures making them accessible to young people from all backgrounds.
Mobility programs must include activities that are conducive to personal, academic or professional development such as seminars, internships and cultural productions.
The agency may provide funding or technical support for the development and implementation of mobility projects that originate in the community.
