Message from the Director

As we celebrate the remarkable 11-year journey of Encore! Sistema Québec, we take great pride in being a pioneering organization in Quebec, dedicated to delivering innovative and transformative El Sistema-inspired programs to children and youth in the vibrant metropolitan area of Montreal and Kahnawà:ke.

Encore! Sistema Québec’s design aims to meet social objectives and serves as a direct solution to problems such as bullying and violence. Through Encore! Sistema, we aspire to support teachers, inspire administrators, engage parents and families, build communities, sustain partners and help students achieve their full potential.
