Raising the Grade!
Boys and Girls Clubs of Canada delivers a 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.
Boys and Girls Clubs of South Coast BC is honoured to be part of Raising the Grade. This after-school program gives our youth the tools and opportunities they need to excel in school, and the chance to explore personal interests, connect with mentors, tutors, and friends while enhancing their digital literacy.
Raising the Grade Technology Centres:
Boys and Girls Clubs of South Coast BC has two Raising the Grade technology centres located at our Fraserview and Kimount Clubs. The centres provide a designated space with access to high-speed Internet and up-to-date computers in order to support learning. They also provide a positive, collaborative environment that helps youth feel comfortable and engaged.
The centres are reserved for Raising the Grade participants at specific times during the week, but outside of program hours they open to all Club members!
