All In For Youth is a city-wide initiative focused on school completion. The initiative aims to reduce the high school dropout rate in Calgary.
This is a United Way led initiative involving community partners, corporate partners and philanthropic investors. Boys & Girls Clubs of Calgary is fortunate to be one of those community partners.
The key focuses of All In For Youth are to keep Calgary’s youth in school, bring youth back to school and set up youth for success to continue their education. All In For Youth strives to connect youth to positive adults, remove barriers to success and to continue to change attitudes and behaviours.
