Our Mission:

More High School Graduates

More Youth Enrolling in College, University or Trade Education.

Keeping kids in school can improve many life outcomes, including health, higher life-long earning potential, and lower the chances of at-risk behaviour.

Together we can build a skilled local workforce ready for the modern economy while helping local youth prosper.

Students with a minimum of one year of post-secondary education are shown to have $11,000 to $17,000 more in annual earnings during their lifetime, essentially putting them on a pathway to prosperity.
