We’ve identified community organizations in Canada that have gone above and beyond to provide their communities with educational support programs. These grants will help our partners continue to run innovative community programs focused on inspiring youth to continue their education and to develop skills to help them succeed.
In 2018, we plan to award up to 100 community grants to organizations across the country that provide innovative, entrepreneurial and community leadership programming for youth grades 7-12 that inspire youth to go on to post-secondary education.
Here are a few examples of organizations and programs that we proudly supported last year:
The design, development and delivery of experiential science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM) education outreach programming for youth in grades 6-12 by Actua in BC.
The mission of the Cybermentor program is to inspire girls in science and engineering. The program achieves this mission via two goals: Broadening girls’ knowledge of career opportunities and benefits for women in science, technology, engineering and math-focused fields.
Through JA’s newly updated Economics for Success Program, students in grades 8-10 plan an education and career path. They gain a stronger sense of who they are and how to use their strengths to succeed in the future. Economics for Success leaders make learning fun by using games and multimedia to boost students' self-confidence and help them apply the lessons to their lives immediately.
Positive Alternatives for Youth (PAY) is a community-based program that supports youth at-risk between the ages 12–20 to become positively involved in their community.
Friends of Simon recruits, prepares, and assigns university students as literacy tutors in the Lower Mainland, particularly with newcomer K-12 students.
Alloprof provides services (a telephone service, a text message service and 6 online services) involving a team of qualified teachers and a virtual community composed of helping students and parents with their academic studies.
How do I apply for a community grant?
Community grant recipients are identified through internal regional committees at Rogers. The recipient organizations are chosen based on their dedication to youth and/or education. At this time, we do not have an open call for applications for our community grants.
