The project summary

The Grandes Rencontres project, created by the Fondation Jasmin Roy in conjunction with the Ministère de l’Éducation, de l’Enseignement supérieur et de la Recherche, and the Peace Grantmakers Network, brings together a variety of stakeholders – from educational partners to research organizations like PREVNet – in an effort to create a positive and caring school climate. These organizations and their partners are devoted to the struggle against violence and bullying, and together provide school system stakeholders with training.

Let us remember that the Grandes Rencontres will train Quebec teachers, principals and school stakeholders by holding a 2-day round of meetings over 3 years throughout the 17 regions of Quebec. The training days began in autumn 2016 and will be completed in autumn 2018. Note that we will not be visiting each school. Rather representatives from each school who will attend these regional groupings.
