Violence Prevention in Schools Grant

The City of North Vancouver Violence Prevention in Schools Grant was adopted by Council in 1994 as part of a general initiative to address violence in the community. Since 1994, a number of anti-bullying, personal development and leadership courses, peer counselling and behavioural intervention programs have been supported by this grant.

The main goal of the Violence Prevention in Schools Grant is to increase student wellness and personal safety. A maximum grant of $5,000 can be awarded for any one school.

Grant Application & Awarding

Each year a call for proposals to all City public schools is conducted in September by School District #44. A selection committee consisting of the School Assistant Superintendents, one to two City students, a school trustee, a member of the North Vancouver Teacher's Association, Coordinator of Safe and Caring schools, and a staff member from the City's Community Development department adjudicates the proposals.

View the Terms of Reference for details on funding priorities, and eligible and ineligible expenses. 

The School District also disperses the grants to the individual schools, conducts accountability procedures, and presents a year-end summary of the grants to Council on an annual basis.
