Reading…Give it a Shot

Reading Give It A Shot is a reading program in partnership with the Calgary Flames and other corporate supporters. Children from grade 1 to grade 6 earn Canadian Wildlife, Species at Risk and/or hockey cards for reading minutes, giving them even more incentive to develop their skills. Every year one lucky school get a visit from Calgary Flames players and Flames mascot Harvey the Hound.

Reading…Give it a Shot registration is now open for the school year!

Books for Kids


We are strengthening our literacy program by adding the donation of books to selected schools in Alberta.  With program we can increase our impact on literacy levels and provide children with all the tools they need to elevate their literacy skills and discover the joy of reading.


Trades and Climate Change Education is our newest program. School districts partner with trade union facilities to provide hands-on learning experiences in various skilled trades. The programs are held at off-campus locations in first-class facilities. They are taught by journeymen instructors in the construction trades and can lead to ongoing training and exciting careers in trades.
