After the Bell Student Supports Tutoring Program is a new initiative created by Communities Building Youth Futures Corner Brook, supported by the YMCA of Western NL. 

Statistics Canada Census in 2016 stated that in the Corner Brook region, high school drop-out rate is 10.1%, which is above the provincial average, and 48.5% of youth aged 16 to 24 score a level 2 or below in literacy (equivalent to Grade 7 to 9). After the Bell Student Supports aims to decrease these numbers by supporting students to overcome academic barriers through mentorship and academic tutoring.
