Monday afternoon, RBC Royal Bank announced a two-year commitment to fund United Way’s After-School Program to support children and youth across the community.

RBC’s investment will directly fund after-school programs through United Way across Windsor and Essex County. United Way funded after-school programs are delivered in collaboration by Big Brothers Big Sisters Windsor Essex, Drouillard Place, House of Shalom, Muslim Association of Canada, Sandwich Teen Action Group and Youth and Family Resource Network.

After-school programs are designed to engage youth between the ages of 7 through 18, provide leadership opportunities, enhance scholastic achievement and provide opportunities for recreation, and arts and culture enrichment.

According to John Sutton, Executive Director at Big Brothers Big Sisters Windsor-Essex, “RBC Royal Bank’s support through United Way will make a significant impact on the lives of children in the local community. When children have an opportunity to participate in an after-school program, it can be life-changing.”
