RBC is partnered with WE, a movement that empowers people to change the world.
To celebrate Canada’s 150th Anniversary, RBC is challenging people like you to #Make150Count to prove that when you invest in youth, great things happen.
Collect coins on your own, with your class or friends with WE Create Change, and drop them off at any RBC branch. Your efforts could help families in developing communities make big change for the next generation through Free The Children’s WE Villages.
RBC & WE
RBC knows that when you believe in youth, any Someday can happen. That's why RBC has chosen to partner with WE, a movement of extraordinary people coming together to give Youth the tools they need to create the change they want to see in the world. Lead by Canadians, Craig and Marc Kielburger, the organization’s efforts are helping to lift more than one million people out of poverty in Africa, Asia, and Latin America via WE Charity. In the United States, Canada, and the United Kingdom, WE Schools and WE Day provide comprehensive service learning programs to 10,000 schools, engaging and inspiring 2.4 million young change-makers.
RBC & WE Day
WE Day is an annual event that celebrates and inspires change. Every year, this event helps motivate, educate, and empower youth to make a difference locally and globally. As National Co-Title Sponsor, RBC helps to bring WE Day to 11 cities across Canada and the U.S. We are continually awed and made proud by the excitement and energy that each and every event brings to our communities.
It All Add$ Up
With the right tools and a little courage, students can be empowered to make sound financial decisions that, not only impact them, but their community and the world.
We want to help kids feel empowered with the knowledge, skills and confidence they need to make smart everyday financial decisions and work toward their goals. But we know it's not easy to incorporate financial education into everyday lessons.
That's why we've put together tools to help teach personal finance through practical learning. It's called It All Adds Up because all those day-to-day choices we make, big and small, do add up and set the course for our future.
