Supported by RBC Future Launch, this program is designed to provide skills, mentors, and supports to youth ages 10 and up. Raise the Grade helps these students through academic support and career discovery at Boys and Girls Clubs. Join our educational program which gives you the chance to learn life skills, career planning, resume building, and get some homework help. You will be required to meet with your raising the grade mentor at least 4 times a month to meet the qualifications and to get an incentive at the end of your raising the grade experience.
Through hands-on learning opportunities, a specific focus on personal interests and goals, and supportive relationships with mentors and volunteers, young people are given the skills and tools they need to be successful in school, work, and life.
Have fun creating your own works of art using some new materials as well as the ones you already know!
