Our results speak for themselves!

The Fondation Jean Lapointe works with a scientifically proven prevention method and strategy that take into account the best practices. Their workshops include:

  • Sharing current knowledge on drugs
  • Role play sessions and scenarios on peer influence (friends or others)
  • Reflections on the parent-teen relationship
  • Debates about young people's beliefs concerning various drugs including cannabis
  • Strategies to deal with risky situations

Our workshops are conducted by specially trained prevention facilitators to address our children’s concerns and to align the messages they receive.
