Khalid was struggling with his English before he started attending programs at the Boys and Girls Club of Moncton at age 7. Through their Raise the Grade program, he developed a love of reading and now, he says, “I’m as good as the kids at school are.”

One of United Way’s 21 funded agencies, the Boys and Girls Club of Moncton’s Momentum Initiative works with young people to overcome barriers related to a wide range of issues, including education.
Education inequality is an #UNIGNORABLE issue in our community that can only be solved when we don’t turn away. By taking action today with a donation to United Way, you can make a tremendous impact in the lives of youth and families who face barriers.
Together, we can help make sure all youth in Greater Moncton and Southeastern New Brunswick have the opportunity to be all they can be.
