Community mobilization

Since the introduction of its first pilot projects in four Quebec schools in 2011-2012, the Foundation has become an essential actor in fighting against discrimination, bullying and violence towards children in schools.

As well as helping to fight bullying, our prevention programs assist institutions in meeting bill 56 requirements (Education Act, chap. 19), adopted in June 2012.

Based on the experience from 13 pilot projects during the 2013-2014 school year, the Foundation wishes to extend its presence to a larger number of Quebec primary and secondary schools by implementing its new prevention program. Beginning in 2014-2015, this new program will replace the previous years pilot projects. Details will be released during the next months.

Our program summary

Each school that participates in our school assistance program or prevention program receives $10,000, which is meant to cover an educational worker’s salary for one day per week, annually. Training and support at the school are offered by l'Institut Pacifique. This amount is directly funded by the Jasmin Roy Foundation. This is directly funded by Fondation Jasmin Roy.

In return, the school receiving the funds must ensure that the selected educational worker be available at least one day per week to devote himself/herself to the fight against bullying, discrimination and violence.

These programs create and maintain an interest in the fight against school bullying within the school and community.

To ensure they are successful, recognized school bullying specialists regularly and jointly evaluate each school assistance program.

Using this approach, the Foundation mobilizes many actors with important expertise related to the fight against bullying around the same goal: to create a stimulating and safe school environment for all.
