George Brown College Foundations in Banking Program Graduation On May 7th, 2021, 11 youth that were enrolled in the 13-week pilot program in partnership with RBC completed their program and graduated. All 11 have been hired post internship for full-time employment with RBC. The Foundation, George Brown College and Ahead of the Game worked together to create a virtual graduation experience complete with celebratory charcuterie boards, hand delivered certificates and graduation gifts. The feedback from the youth was consistently positive that this had been an opportunity for growth, development, and sustainable independence into a career. The youth prepared a testimonial video as part of the ceremony.
