Discover your Strengths

Join Raise the Grade, an educational program offered at BGC Thunder Bay, supported by RBC Future Launch. We’ll be designing our program activities around your input. Some things we have in mind already are sports nights, computer programming activities, cooking classes, and life-skills practice.

Have FUN!

Come hang out in our Teen space, play pool, play sports in the gym, meet up with friends, learn new skills and eat some great snacks.

Find your Champion

Through our program you will be matched with a mentor who will help you discover your interests, consider career options, choose high school courses to help meet your career goals, offer homework help and study skills, help with post-secondary application and planning. 

We know you’ve got a pile of assignments to finish, exam reviews starting, and you’re struggling to understand how quadratic functions is useful in everyday life… school is tough… BUT!! Have no fear… we’re here to help! Raise the Grade has teacher candidates and tutors ready to help you achieve your goals this semester. Don’t go down without a fight!

Raise the Grade gives access to many links and tools to help explore your strengths and interests. We will also assist you in learning about different careers that will match with your strengths and interests. 

Mentoring is a huge part of the Raise the Grade Program. Whether it’s someone to coach you through a school project or assignment; or someone who will listen to you and let you dream big, we’ll do our best to get to know you and match you with that person who could be your champion.
