Safe, Welcoming and Inclusive Environment

On October 27, 2015, The RBC Foundation in partnership with the Calgary Bridge Foundation for Youth announced a $40,000 contribution to the RBC Youth Empowerment Program for newcomer and immigrant youth 14-19 years of age. The event was held at John G. Diefenbaker High School, and Joshua Riker-Fox, a RBC sponsored Olympian, was the guest speaker. Candy Serrano, a grade eleven student, presented The RBC Foundation with a gift as a token of appreciation on behalf of her peers. The RBC Youth Empowerment Program is a five-day a week afterschool program that provides youth with a safe, welcoming and inclusive environment and empowers immigrant and newcomer youth with free academic tutoring support in all core subjects, language proficiency, leadership and lifelong learning skills. Youth are also introduced to Canadian culture and post-secondary institutions through numerous field trips.
