Monday, Tuesday & Thursday
Boys and Girls Clubs of Canada will deliver a new multi-faceted education program called 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, The Boys and Girls Club of Durham are pleased to be part of the program in its inaugural year.
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. www.raisingthegrade.ca
Raising the Grade Technology Centres
The Raising the Grade Technology Centres will provide youth with a designated space delivering access to high-speed Internet and current technology including computers and other electronic resources to support learning. They offer a positive, collaborative environment in which youth feel comfortable and engaged. Each participating Club will have specific times during the week when only Rogers Raising the Grade participants will have access. Outside of the program hours, all other Club members will have the opportunity to use the Raising the Grade Technology Centres.
