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 of 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.
In association with Boys and Girls Clubs of Canada
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 Clubs of Niagara (St. Catharines Facer Street location) is pleased to be part of the program in its inaugural year.
Rogers Raising the Grade will provide our youth with the skills, tools and opportunities necessary to excel academically and secure their future success as productive, independent and contributing members of society. It is an interactive after-school program that allows youth to explore their personal interests, receive homework support, connect with mentors and/or tutors, interact with peers, increase their digital literacy and plan for post-secondary education.

The Rogers Raising the Grade Technology Centres provide youth with a designated space delivering access to high-speed Internet and current technology including computers and other electronic resources to support learning. They offer a positive, collaborative environment in which youth feel comfortable and engaged. Each participating Club will have specific times during the week when only Rogers Raising the Grade participants will have access. Outside of the program hours, all other Club members will have the opportunity to use the Rogers Raising the Grade Technology Centres.
