Every young person deserves a chance to succeed at school and become a life-long learner. Raising the Grade (RTG) aims to promote academic engagement among young people and increase their rate of high school completion and participation in post-secondary education. A partnership between the Boys and Girls Clubs of Canada (BGCC) and Rogers, the program was designed to provide young people at risk of dropping out of high school with enhanced supports and diverse, youth-driven learning opportunities, including technology-based learning, academic support, career exploration and discovery, mentorship, and positive, supportive relationships.
