Get Ahead With Academic Support
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 Winnipeg is pleased and proud to be part of Raising 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.

Our Raising 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 Raising the Grade participants at specific times during the week. Outside of the program hours, the Raising the Grade technology centre is open to all Club members.
We currently have two Winnipeg locations that offer Raising the Grade programming:
