  1. In regards to the Think Tank on May 25th, I am a guidance counsellor that will be driving two of my students to Acadia. Are the adults allowed to assist?

    Bonjour Lise,

    Great to hear that your students will be participating. It sounds like you’re wondering if adults can participate, or if there is some kind of activity or gathering for adult supporters. Is that right?

    I wish I had that information myself! The Valley Youth Project received this notice recently but we haven’t been involved with the planning, so I don’t have any additional information. The Safe Schools Initiative (the national organization co-ordinating this project) has a phone number on their main page: 416-977-1050

    They also have a web form where you can contact them.

    Good luck, and hope you and your students have a great experience!

  3. The submit button on the permission form doesn’t work….what else can I do to send the information over?
