Pleins Rayons is a non-profit organization established in 2015 with a mission to support the active social inclusion and autonomy of young adults with an intellectual disability or autism spectrum disorder. Since being established, Pleins Rayons has provided parents with a new alternative to help support their child.
Through its social vocational programs Pleins Rayons has not only made a difference in the lives of its apprentices, allowing them to develop skills that will be transferable to the work force and be an active participant in society, but the lives of the people in Brome-Missisquoi through its various community projects. After years of hard work, Pleins Rayons is now looking for financial support in hopes of continuing to provide its services in the region.
Stephan Marcoux and Michael Herman joined forces to start Pleins Rayons five years ago when they discovered that they both had a mutual interest in starting a program to refurbish bicycles.
Herman was already running a program where he fixed up bicycles that were then distributed to local families in need when he met Marcoux.
