The Deadline is Approaching to Apply For Organized After School Program Grants.

 The RBC Foundation is offering grants of up to 40 thousand dollars for community based organizations that offer after school programs.  Flin Flon Royal Bank Branch Manager Mike Yarowy explains the RBC after school project supports organizations that provide children with a safe place to go after school where they can get some homework help, learn new skills and increase their self esteem. He adds there’s been studies and they found that children who participate in after school programs are more likely to complete their homework, achieve higher grades, less likely to drop out, improve their social skills and have a more positive attitude towards school with a greater interest in pursuing post-secondary education.

             

The deadline to apply for the grant is Monday with forms available on their web site www.rbc.com/afterschool.
