Building a positive and inclusive school environment

The fundamental purpose of Desjardins Foundation is to promote academic success. It's the reason we actively support a variety of innovative programs that make a real difference, not only for youth, but for parents, too.

So Desjardins Foundation is proud to announce the October launch of Les Grandes Rencontres, an initiative from Desjardins partner Fondation Jasmin Roy. It's a series of anti-violence and anti-bullying workshops for a broad group of stakeholders in the educational community.

Les Grandes Rencontres has a province-wide scope, travelling to each of Quebec's 17 regions to provide professional development sessions over a day and a half to teachers, principals and school stakeholders.

The first session will be held in Laval on October 3 and 4, 2016. If you're interested, you can find more details and learn when meetings are being held in other regions on the Les Grandes Rencontres - External link. This link will open in a new window. site.
