RBC Invests in Ignite
On November 14, 2017, RBC presented Ignite Adult Learning Corporation with a cheque for $30,000. Ignite Adult Learning is proud to have the Royal Bank of Canada (RBC) as a strong investor throughout the years. Don Morris, Regional Vice President of Regina RBC, emphasized how the Royal Bank aligns with Ignite’s goal of turning marginalized young adults into educated, self-supporting employees within our community.
Ignite believes it is more effective and efficient, both socially and economically, to invest in the potential of young adults than it is to finance their incarceration and rehabilitation.
Ignite’s alumni are contributing members to our community. Our alumni are:
Small business owners
We are incredibly honoured and excited to announce that “Royal Bank Sponsored an Employee Apprentice”. Investing in the young people of Saskatchewan has a positive impact on Regina and Saskatchewan’s economic growth.
Don Morris, Regional Vice President Regina for RBC, and Carlo Bizzarri, Program Manager for Ignite Adult Learning Corporation
The number of marginalized young adults who have graduated from our program and become self-sufficient members of the community exceeds 800. To contribute to Ignite’s success, find out more information on how you can help.
