With the support of the Rogers Youth Fund, Boys and Girls Clubs of Canada delivers a multi-faceted education program called Rogers Raising the Grade,<http://www.raisingthegrade.ca/> 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.
The Boys and Girls Clubs of Wetaskiwin is pleased and proud to be part of Rogers Raising the Grade. The program gives youth from 12 - 19 years the tools and opportunities to excel in school and go on to become successful and independent. Young people can explore their personal interests and connect with mentors, tutors and friends while enhancing their digital literacy through this after-school program.
Our Rogers Raising the Grade Technology Centre provides a designated space with access to high-speed Internet and up-to-date computers in order to support learning. A positive, collaborative environment helps youth feel comfortable and engaged and is reserved for Rogers Raising the Grade participants at specific times during the week. Outside of the program hours, the Rogers Raising the Grade Technology Centre is open to all Club members.
