The RTJSIS mission is to positively influence¬†Aboriginal high school graduation rates through mentoring and financial support as needed. The program is designed to encourage ‘at risk’ students to continue with their education and targets two high-needs areas in Calgary. Financial assistance is provided to selected Aboriginal students as a kick-start toward high school graduation. RTJSIS allocates up to $1500 per year for each student and provides this support from Grades 6 -12.
