Raising the Grade is an educational program of Boys and Girls Clubs of Canada. In our Raising the Grade technology centres, we will help you discover your interests, shape your career goals, and plan for your future.
You will be matched with a mentor or volunteer who will help you to:
• Discover your own interests • Figure out what kind of a career you might like • Choose the right high school courses to reach your chosen career • Study for your courses and work on your homework • Fill out applications to colleges and scholarships when you are ready
The Raising the Grade website gives you access to many links and tools to help you explore your interests.
If you are a program participant, the community site will also assist you in learning about the kinds of careers that match what you already love to do or what you may discover you love to do through the program.
The Raising the Grade technology centre provides you with a designated room containing computers, high-speed Internet access, hardware and software to best support your learning and interests.
After two years in Raising the Grade, whether you en-roll in college, apprenticeship, or university, you will receive a $1,000 scholarship to help you cover the costs of attending post-secondary education. It’s that simple!
Raising the Grade is focused on your interests and goals. The program is not an extension of the school day but is a place where you can learn, discover and receive academic support when you need it.
