Get Ahead With Academic Support
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.
Boys and Girls Clubs of Winnipeg is pleased and proud to be part of Raise the Grade. The program gives youth the tools and opportunities to excel in school and go on to become successful and independent. Young people in grades 8-12 can explore their personal interests and connect with mentors, tutors and friends while enhancing their digital literacy through this after-school program.
Raise the Grade Technology Centre
Our Raise 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 Raise the Grade participants at specific times during the week. Outside of the program hours, the Raise the Grade technology centre is open to all Club members.
We currently have two Winnipeg locations that offer Raise the Grade programming:
