In Calgary, 3000 youth do not complete high school on time each year.
In 2018, 1021 unique youth were supported by sixteen Success Coaches and one Transition Coach through All In For Youth, a partner program with the United Way of Calgary and Area that helps youth return to school by removing barriers that were preventing them from completing their education.
Of those youth who participated, 91% said their ability to envision a positive future for themselves has improved since meeting a Success Coach.
The Education programs at Boys & Girls Clubs of Calgary are guided by 3 principles:
- Keep youth in school
- Bring youth back to school
- Connect youth to future possibilities
- Success Coaches have supported 4,553 students in high school since the beginning of the All In For Youth collaborative projects.
- 86% of students in 2017-18 high school year remain in school or have graduated.
