Raise the Grade is an academic success and life after school skills program for youth in grades 7-12. Youth in this program will focus on achieving academic and personal goals, as well as have the opportunity to explore personal interest opportunities, with the support of staff and volunteer tutors and mentors. RTG aims to encourage youth and support families by giving them free access to tutoring, technology, and a supportive environment. 

 

Youth Drop in (Available at selected sites. Activities and times may vary)

BGCGH offers youth drop-in programs for youth who are in grades 7+. We are striving to provide many opportunities for our youth to develop life skills, like resume building and learning about budgeting in a fun and exciting way. We offer a variety of programming ranging from learning how to cook, to making melt bead crafts. We occasionally offer events and outings as well, like bowling, swimming and over nights.

Breakfast Programs

BGCGH partners with many schools to provide a nutritious breakfast, free of charge, in a supportive and positive environment for students of the school.

Breakfast Program Details

BGCGH provides breakfast and/or grab and go in the following schools;

  • Admiral Westphal Elementary School
  • Bicentennial School
  • Caledonia Junior High School
  • Dartmouth High School
  • Harbourview Elementary School
  • Ian Forsyth Elementary School
  • Shannon Park Elementary School

Kids skip breakfast at home for many reasons, but it is well known that children who arrive at school hungry, cannot learn to the best of their abilities. Breakfast is considered to be the most important meal of the day. The program provides an opportunity for students to get a nutritious start to their days so they are prepared to get the most out of school. Many students enjoy the social time of having breakfast with their friends. The free program is open to any student, check with the school office for location, start date, time and permission form. The breakfast program is made possible by the generous support of many community organizations and foundations. Donations are always welcome from parents. Income tax receipts are available for donations made out to the Boys & Girls Club of East Dartmouth. Volunteers are needed for all the programs. The time commitment is 1 hour in the morning before school anywhere from one day a week to once a month. Please contact the Nutrition Coordinator at breakfast.lead@bgcgh.ca
