In 1999, RBC (Royal Bank of Canada) convened an Advisory Panel of education experts from across Canada to help focus RBC's funding on programs that help keep kids in school. After-school programs were cited as being one area where RBC could help out at the community level and make a real difference. RBC After-School Grant recipient programs offer a range of structured, supervised activities that encourage social skills and self-esteem. Activities such as computer instruction, sports, literacy tutoring, music and art lessons, nutrition guidance, and homework-help provide kids with opportunities to gain an area of competence outside of academics and benefit their self-esteem.

OBS

En 1999, RBC (Banque Royale du Canada) a mis sur pied un comité consultatif regroupant des spécialistes de l'éducation de tout le Canada dont le mandat est de l'aider à mettre son aide financière au service de programmes de luttes contre le décrochage scolaire. Il en est ressorti que les programmes d'activités parascolaires sont un des secteurs où RBC peut jouer un rôle déterminant à l'échelle de la collectivité. Les programmes bénéficiant d'une subvention de RBC offrent un éventail d'activités structurées et encadrées qui mettent en valeur les aptitudes sociales et l'estime personnelle.
