Whether online or in-person, when kids and teens go back to school in September, BGC Clubs across the country will be there to support them.
The pandemic created issues none of us were prepared for—but it also sparked innovative solutions. Working with less, our Clubs continue to offer the support that so many young people need during the school year, from PPE and school supplies to homework help and postsecondary planning, mental health check-ins and peer support groups to healthy meals before and after school, and so much more.
As the 200,000 kids and teens we support at 736 locations across Canada head back to school this September, your generosity will allow our Clubs to continue providing safe places, in-person and virtual programs tailored to community need, and healthy, empowering relationships that help young people develop confidence and resiliency that will serve them for life.
Your donation will bring us closer to our goal of helping every young person access what they need to succeed. In addition to donating online, you can also support BGC Canada through our amazing corporate partner initiatives.
