About Rogers Youth Fund: The Rogers Youth Fund initiative is a national program that helps youth overcome education challenges and excel in the classroom and beyond. The Rogers Youth Fund is currently working with 16 local charities as well as Boys and Girls Clubs of Canada nationally. For more information, visit www.rogersyouthfund.com
Rogers believes that every young person deserves the chance to reach their full potential. Rogers also believes that education is the key to helping young people realize this potential. This is why Rogers developed the Rogers Youth Fund.
The Rogers Youth Fund initiative is a national program designed to provide basic academic support (literacy, numeracy, and languages), tools and resources needed to excel both inside and outside the classroom. It is dedicated to helping Canada’s youth overcome the barriers they face in getting the most out of their education, particularly those who are at risk due to poverty, isolation, being new to Canada, or who face challenges at home.
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, 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.With the support of the Rogers Youth Fund, Boys and Girls Clubs of Canada will deliver a new multi-faceted education program called Rogers 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 Club of Cochrane and Area are pleased to be part of the program.
