The JDC is a key step not to be missed. This mandatory day raises young people's awareness of the spirit of Defense and commitment to society. Coming after the census, this is the third and final stage of the citizenship journey. For one day, it presents young people with the issues and general objectives of defense and national security, raising their awareness of the rights and duties related to citizenship, road safety, organ donation, etc. This day also makes it possible to evaluate the basic learning of the French language or even to detect young people without diplomas and without jobs to offer them solutions. The JDC is the keystone of the Armed Forces Youth Ambition Plan to follow young people, introduce them to the professions of the armed forces and support them until they are hired.
