RBC recognizes the vital role Canada’s youth play in the evolution and future of our communities and economy. That is why we’re proud of our long-term commitment to Free The Children, a world-wide youth movement founded in Canada. As the National Co-Title Sponsor of Free The Children’s We Day and We Schools in Action, RBC is connecting with young people to provide financial literacy and philanthropy tools and resources that will help them build toward successful financial futures.
RBC wants to help young people succeed in life, by providing the next generation of Canadians with the financial foundation necessary for them to achieve whatever goals they set for themselves. Through We Day events, amazing online interactive content and a new We School curriculum and campaigns, RBC will help Canadian youth be empowered to make a difference in the world.
You are on: We Day
We Day is a cause agnostic platform that allows for youth to engage on any issue they are passionate about – it results in powerful and diverse content that amplifies and engages these youth beyond the event. That's why RBC is helping to bring Free The Children’s signature youth empowerment event, We Day, to eight cities across Canada – making this a truly national program and the largest to date.

This year Free The Children is launching the largest penny drive in Canadian history! Even pennies, when added together, can have a huge impact. Collect pennies to help us reach our goal of providing a sustainable source of clean water to 100,000 people.
Donating pennies may seem like a small action, but when everyone in your class, school, or several schools chips in, your change amounts to global impact.
Free The Children is an international charity that believes in a world where all young people are free to achieve their fullest potential as agents of change. They support leadership training in North America and the UK, and community development projects in developing nations.
One Drop, founded by Cirque du Soleil's Guy Laliberté, is dedicated to changing and influencing how safe water is shared and made accessible around the world. They develop innovative projects with an international scope, in which water plays a central role.
