Fringues: a learning and training space for women
Fringues & Cie is an employability program provided by the YWCA Montreal , and the thrift boutique serves as a work placement for program participants. All the boutique’s sale consultants are Fringues & Cie participants.
This program gives women who have difficulty integrating the job market a chance to acquire their first significant job experience and receive training in sales and customer services. All profits generated by sales at the boutique are reinvested in the Fringues & Cie employability program. So, buying at the thrift boutique is a great way to support the mission of YWCA Montreal.
