Entrepreneurship Awareness and Promotion Officers (EAPO)
They work in the province’s Carrefours jeunesse-emploi (CJE) to promote, stimulate, and encourage entrepreneurial activities among young people. They help foster an entrepreneurial culture that will allow youth to develop attitudes, skills, and competences that will be useful to them as entrepreneurs, employees, or community members.
