Boys & Girls Clubs of Canada - Homework Help Update

What a school year it has been! As summer rolls around, all kids across Canada are wrapping up their last couple months of school. Like every year, Boys and Girls Clubs across Canada have been hard at work ensuring the children and youth in our Clubs have the homework support they need to ensure they finish the academic year strong. Our Clubs place a large importance on providing educational support to children and youth. Clubs continue to make a difference in kids’ lives by putting them in a positive environment, and surrounding them with qualified staff members and dedicated volunteers that truly want to help children and youth succeed.

One of the great things about the homework support programs  offered at Clubs across Canada is that they are truly tailored to that specific community and the children who attend the Club. Everyone has different needs and requirements; our approach allows everyone to run a successful program for their community.

Your continued support of Boys and Girls Clubs of Canada is appreciated.  You play an important role in enabling us to support Clubs in offering homework help programs to children and youth across Canada.

Boys & Girls Clubs of Canada-Support Young People

Thank you for your continued support to Boys and Girls Clubs of Canada (BGCC). Your generous donations allow us to continue providing important programs that support the healthy development of young people.

BGCC recently launched a video that shows just one of the amazing programs we run to support young people and advance their future. The program is called the Skilled4Success- Hospitality program and is supported by Cara. Most teens find their first job in the hospitality industry, and the skills and lessons they learn at these jobs can help shape their future work ethic, as well as attitude. The Skilled4Success- Hospitality program helps youth practice the skills they will need for a job in the hospitality industry. Practicing these skills can help teens gain the confidence they need to find their first job.

Check out the video here and listen first hand from Youth about how the program impacted them.

Thank you for your support to Boys and Girls Clubs of Canada’s (BGCC) Homework Help program.  With your generous support, we are able to assist children and youth nationally in their quest for academic success. 

BGCC is pleased to share that we recently succeeded in securing Giant Tiger as a new corporate funder to our Homework Help program.  In August, we launched Giant Tiger Giant Steps, a homework support program for children in grades 7 and 8 (12-14 years old).

Giant Tiger Giant Steps offers opportunities for young people to complete homework and receive tutoring in a supportive environment. By engaging kids at an earlier age, Club staff can help prepare them for the rigors of high school, and ensure they are well-positioned to meet academic demands. Giant Steps also encourages young people to build relationships with Club staff, their peers, and mentors, and develop communication and leadership skills.

Thanks to Giant Tiger’s donation, 14 Boys and Girls Clubs across the country were able to run the Giant Steps program in 2017/2018.

“With the Giant Tiger Giant Steps program, children will benefit from improved literacy and numeracy during a critical age—grades seven and eight,” Boys and Girls Club Executive Director.

Thank you again for your generosity to the Homework Help program!
