The RBC Youth Empowerment Program uses a holistic approach to help high school immigrant and English learners to overcome challenges in the classroom. We offer free academic tutoring in math, sciences, literacy, and writing. Youth are also exposed to post-secondary education through tours of universities and colleges.
This program runs after school from Monday to Friday, and sessions are 2 hours long.
Through this program, we seek to help students:
- Increase their grades
- Practice English language skills
- Improve reading and writing skills
- Develop leadership skills
- Explore Canadian culture
- Tour post-secondary campuses
- Win scholarships
- Build friendships
The RBC Youth Empowerment Program offers a safe space for immigrant youth to achieve academic goals, make new friends, and build a sense of belonging.
