Did you know that in many Edmonton communities today, success is only a dream?
Right now, countless families and children, for financial reasons alone, can't access the help they need to succeed.
Metro Continuing Education is working hard to change that. We

Invest in Success can make what was once a dream a successful reality.
Designed for students in Grades 1-12, Metro's high-quality
programs help students build motivation, focus and the desire to learn,
as well as skill in core subjects. Programs offer classes ranging from
math, science, ESL, cultural exploration, reading and writing to
computers, art, business and self development. We already know, access
to extra help through one of our many innovative programs is making a
difference. And we believe that difference will last a lifetime.

Even with our commitment to keeping costs to a minimum, many
district students still can't afford the help. They need your support.

with an identified financial need. By giving to the Invest In Success
Trust, you give the gift of access to one or more exceptional learning
opportunities right away. But your investment doesn't stop there -
increased desire and motivation lasts a lifetime.
Your gift to Edmonton's future can be directed to one of two priorities:
- individual scholarships for student registration fees
- school program funding for whole programs where they are needed most
By investing in Edmonton's success, you will join a growing group
of citizens who believe as much in student achievement as we do.
Together we can share the satisfaction of helping children and families
in our own community reach their goals and help Edmonton thrive.
