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:
- Providing students with tutoring and homework help.
- Assisting students to develop academic goals and helping them reach those goals.
- Providing opportunities to develop relationships with mentors and peers.
- Encouraging social engagement through the Boys and Girls Club community.
- 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.
- 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. It 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.
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 M.A.P. program focuses on supporting youth in Grades 9 through 12 in their educational journey. Senior M.A.P. is a registered academic program where students are able to receive personalized tutoring help from volunteers who can provide assistance with homework, projects or studying for upcoming tests. Senior M.A.P. focuses on the development and achievement of each student’s academic goals, through individualized action plans and career exploration.
