The Core Neighbourhood Club is a neighbourhood based drop in program for youth in high school and the home of the Raising the Grade program. The program is offered Monday to Friday in the after school hours. Our program will provide a safe and supportive place where youth can build confidence and skills for life. Participants will drive the focus of the program based on their interests. Cultural leadership opportunities as well as life skills programming opportunities will be made available to participants. General programming will also include sport, culture and recreation.
Raise the Grade (www.raisethegrade.ca), supported by RBC Future Launch, is a program designed to provide skills, mentors, and supports to high school students. Raise the Grade helps these students through academic support and career discovery at Boys and Girls Clubs. 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.
