Regional Group of Social Intervention / (GRIS) Montréal

Address:
3155 Rue Hochelaga, Bureau 201, Montréal, Québec, Canada H1W 1G4
Description:

Le GRIS-Montréal est un organisme à but non lucratif créé en 1994 dont la mission est de favoriser une meilleure connaissance des réalités homosexuelles et bisexuelles et de faciliter l’intégration des personnes gaies, lesbiennes et bisexuelles dans la société.
Puisque l’école est un milieu où les valeurs des jeunes prennent forme et où l’ignorance cède la place à la connaissance, nous avons choisi de prioriser le milieu scolaire pour démystifier l’homosexualité et de la bisexualité. Nous oeuvrons ainsi principalement dans les écoles secondaires et les cégeps de la grande région de Montréal et avons adapté nos interventions pour les élèves du 3e cycle du primaire. Les bénévoles du GRIS interviennent aussi de plus en plus auprès d’autres clientèles comme les classes de francisation, les centres jeunesse, les milieux de travail ou encore les milieux de vie pour personnes âgées.

GRIS-Montreal (Groupe de Recherche et d’Intervention Sociale) is a non-profit organization whose mission is to ensure a better awareness of the homosexual and bisexual reality and to make it easier for gays, lesbians and bisexuals to integrate into society. As is the case for the fight against racism, the integration of any minority can only be achieved by trying to eliminate ignorance and prejudice. Since the values of our youths are being shaped in school and since schools are where knowledge takes precedence over ignorance, GRIS-Montreal focuses most of its actions in the school system, providing demystification of homosexuality and bisexuality workshops to establishments in the Greater Montreal Area. Our workshops are held mainly in high schools, CEGEPs and youth centres in the Greater Montreal area. These workshops rely on the personal experiences of gay, lesbian and bisexual volunteers. They are specially trained to answer any and all questions asked by students. Volunteers work in pairs, most often by a male and female team, which allows students to see there is more than one homosexual reality. After presenting GRIS and the format of the workshop, the volunteers talk briefly about themselves (less than two minutes each) and open the floor to questions from the class. Volunteers welcome any and all questions which they will answer using their own personal experiences rather than theories and statistics. This approach allows kids to put a face on a reality that sometimes scares or intimidates them and this could possibly help them clear up any misconception they have had about homosexuality and bisexuality.
