In association with Boys and Girls Clubs of Canada – Rogers Raising the Grade

With the  support of the Rogers Youth Fund, Boys and Girls Clubs of Canada will deliver a  new multi-faceted education program called Rogers Raising the Grade, aimed at increasing academic skills, high school graduation rates and access to post-secondary education for at-risk youth from a select group of Boys and Girls Clubs across the country. Boys and Girls Club of Wetaskiwin is pleased to be part of the program in its inaugural year. 

Rogers Raising the Grade will provide our youth with the skills, tools and opportunities necessary to excel academically and secure their future success as productive, independent and contributing members of society. It is an interactive after-school program that allows youth to explore their personal interests, receive homework support, connect with mentors and/or tutors, interact with peers, increase their digital literacy, and plan for post-secondary education. 

The Boys and Girls Club of Wetaskiwin is proud to be working with BGCC and Rogers on this important program.
