Board of Directors

The vision of the CJE


“Our board of directors is made up of 7 volunteer people who live and/or work in the MRC of Vaudreuil-Soulanges. We meet every six weeks to ensure respect for the mission, values and sound management of the Carrefour. We support the team in its mandate and contribute to developing the vision of the organization.”

The CJE Board of Directors—

Sophie Boucher


President of the Carrefour since June 2021, I have been involved as an administrative officer for 5 years already, and it is a real pleasure to give my time and expertise to an organization that makes such a big difference in the region, not only for the economy, but also for the next generation, but also for the next generation, the adults of today and tomorrow, to offer them the opportunity to find a job, a career, a goal, a project, a sense... I am proud of the CJD team EVS and the work done by directors, management and all employees!

Very passionate, I love taking on challenges and doing things to surpass myself as much as taking time to recharge my batteries: hiking, road biking, self-defense, yoga, travel... For me life is about working hard, doing what I love and helping others... When I am not running after my children or on my thousand and one projects, I sleep to recover and get going better! 😉 Life is a great adventure where we are the captain! 😊

Mélina Gareau

Vice President

I have been a member of the board of directors of Carrefour Jeunesse-Emploi Vaudreuil-Soulanges since 2017. My involvement at the Carrefour started as an employee since I worked as a guidance counsellor there from 2007 to 2014. I chose to get involved in the CJEVS board of directors because I strongly believe in its mission. I am proud to observe that young people who dare to walk through the CJEVS door find not only a dynamic and committed team, but resources that allow them to develop personally and professionally.

Above all, I am a person who thrives on human relationships. However, I like to feel close to nature and animals. Raising chickens and growing vegetables are part of my lifestyle. There is no better way to stay connected!

Mélanie Lessard


I have been a member of the Carrefour board of directors since 2019. I have been a notary since 2004 and established my office in the Vaudreuil-Soulanges region in April 2019. I use my work experience to support the management of the hub and to get involved with young people in the region.

I love drawing mandalas. When I do it, time stops and the worries disappeared the moment I drew.

Karine Marin


I have a bachelor's degree in fashion marketing, for several years, employed in the Art and Culture division at the city of Vaudreuil-Dorion. I am a creative, dedicated, innovative but above all positive person and always looking for new challenges! A former user of Carrefour services, my objective: to help my community, including that of the Carrefour Jeunesse Emploi Vaudreuil-Soulanges!

I am a girl who always likes to learn, my passion is human. Curious by nature, through my reading, I managed to make my way in this wonderful world, which is ours. Whether it's novels or personal development books, reading brings me calm and an open mind to life situations. What happiness on a daily basis!

Jessica Mathers


I joined the community sector in 2022 as an employee and that made me want to get involved in the community. The mission of the organization spoke to me. I finished CEGEP and didn't know what I wanted to do. I finally took a break from studying for a few years and finished my studies in human resources at 30. The CJEVS is a place for young adults who like me at their age feel a bit lost, they are great projects that allow us to discover everything that youth has to offer us.

I am passionate about board games about general knowledge. A few years ago I had learned all the countries and capitals of the world for fun. I am a “fan” of sports, in fact, of listening to sport:P I was looking for a passion for a long time until I understood that I am a generalist, someone who wants to learn and know a lot of things, especially when it is related to humans.

Laurylise Rodrigues


I have been a member of the Carrefour board of directors since 2023. A former Carrefour client, I came there in search of myself and in order to surpass myself in everyday life. In addition to having found answers to my questions there, the Carrefour gave me an incredible and warm support system. I decided to join the board of directors because I know, personally, that the work that is done with the team helps enormously among young people and adults.

I am a pretty reserved girl so being in my bubble suits me very well, but when I have the chance to help someone in my personal life or a stranger in the supermarket, I'm going to be there for them. Although I am embarrassed, if I am in good company and the weather allows it, I love to play sports, especially soccer. Dressed well or not, life is too short to focus on the little things. 🙂 Doing what I love is what matters to me.
