What is The Box?

The Box is a comfortable, safe place for students to hang out and get support.

It originated because two JDSS students saw a need for students to connect with each other to make friends and form relationships.

The Box has partnered with community organizations that help to provide the support students are looking for.

Community organizations, such as Electrical Contacts Ltd. (ECL), Grey Bruce Eat To Learn, Hanover Oldtimers Hockey Team, and Grants Independent Grocer have sponsored The Box.
