From Beginnings to Brilliance – Nurturing Young Minds at the Ignite Academy After School Program

 By: MCC Ignite Academy Team


The MCC and United Way Ignite Academy program collaborated to provide support and help students in Windsor and Essex County, succeed academically and personally.

The program started last year with a big success and continues to support students as a solution to many challenges students and their families are facing.

The MCC, in collaboration with many local organizations, is providing a MADE-IN-WINDSOR program and is supporting so many students at Begley, General Brock, Immaculate Conception, and St. James schools.
