About the M.A.P. Program 

My Action Plan To Education is a program aimed at helping youth to continue on the road to success in school. The M.A.P. Program is based on four guiding principles. These four main pillars of support for each youth include:

  1. Academic
    • Providing students with tutoring and homework help.
    • Assisting students to develop academic goals and helping them reach those goals.
  2. Social
    • Providing opportunities to develop relationships with mentors and peers.
    • Encouraging social engagement through the Boys and Girls Club community.
  3. Financial
    • Providing immediate assistance for transportation, food, clothing, books, and other educational support materials.
    • Helping students to find and apply for appropriate scholarships, bursaries, and grants.
  4. Advocacy
    • Partnering with parents, students, and community agencies to ensure school attendance, academic, and personal achievements.

A student's M.A.P. Program is developed to meet the needs of that individual youth, and involves the commitment of the youth, his or her parents as well as other partners who will help provide the youth with the best possible opportunities for success. Students will enter into the program in three phases, depending on what grade they are in.

The JUNIOR Phase

Is aimed at students in Grade 4 to 8, and focuses on building basic skills, keeping students motivated and interested in school, as well as addressing individual needs of students for wrap-around support.

The SENIOR Phase

Is aimed at students in Grade 9 to 12. Students will work with staff and volunteers to map out their academic, career and financial maps for the future. Building on the communication stream established in the Junior phase, students will continue to develop life and leadership skills as well as participate in regular mentoring and tutoring sessions.

The EXCELLENCE Phase

Focuses on those students in post-secondary school, trades, and employment. Students will receive guidance, financial assistance, and academic support, as needed. and are preparing for or are in post-secondary education programs
