Raise the Grade has helped me tremendously with my homework, staying on track with my grades, and figuring out my career aspirations. I’m so thankful for a program like RBC Raise the Grade, because I know I can count on my mentors when I need help in any aspect of my life. I graduated high-school in June 2019 and just started the Kinesiology program at Queens University! I got into my dream university and I wouldn’t have been able to do it without the help of my mentors in RBC Raise the Grade. Thank you Lauren and Olivia for all your help over the last three years and St. Alban’s for providing this program for youth!
