About Us

The Rotary Tom Jackson Stay In School Program is a mentoring program that is intended to engage Aboriginal youth early, work with them to keep them in school and drive up high school graduation rates within this community.

Based on the merits of the program, Tom Jackson has lent his name to it and has become actively involved.  At this stage the geographical focus is  Calgary and area.

Partner organizations such as the United Way UpStart, Martin Aboriginal Initiatives, Legacy Children’s Foundation will help develop this into a national program.

Corporate partners for Rotary Tom Jackson Stay In School are afforded the opportunity to participate in the program committee and provide mentors for the program, developing key relationships with Aboriginal leaders and the Aboriginal communities in general.
