RBC Raise the Grade Volunteer Mentor / Tutor

RBC Raise the Grade aims at increasing academic skills, high school graduation rates and access to post-secondary education for at-risk youth from a select group of Boys and Girls Clubs across the country. Raise the Grade provides youth with the skills, tools and opportunities necessary to excel academically and secure their future success as productive, independent and contributing members of society. It is an interactive after-school program that allows youth to explore their personal interests, receive homework support, connect with youth leaders, mentors and/or tutors, interact with peers, increase their digital literacy and plan for post-secondary education.

A key component to this program is matching youth with qualified, dedicated adult volunteer mentors who meet with them on a weekly basis to support them in the program and with their school work. 

Key Responsibilities:

  • Meet weekly one-on-one with a high school student in need of academic support
  • Meet with Education Manager on weekly basis
  • Work as a team with other mentors and youth leaders to support students

Skills and Qualifications

  • Post secondary level education
  • Familiarity and knowledge of post secondary application process in Ontario
  • Ability to research and assist in application process for scholarships for post secondary students
  • Able to assist in most areas of secondary school academics
  • Patience and commitment to being a reliable role model for a young person
  • Boys and Girls Club experience is an asset
  • Ability to work as a team with the Education Manager, youth leaders, and mentors to facilitate learning, growth and opportunity for participants

Volunteer mentors make a commitment until the end of the school year, and ideally until the youth they are matched with graduates from high school. 

Location: 313 Pharmacy Ave, Scarborough, M1L 3E7
