RBC Wealth Management recently demonstrated its commitment to the positive development of the youth in the Cayman Islands through donating funds to the Cayman Islands Youth Development Consortium (CIYDC) a local non-profit, non government organization geared towards promoting positive development of our youth.

The staff at RBC Wealth Management felt that there could be no more fitting way to start off the New Year than giving back to the community and supporting the Cayman Islands Youth Development Consortium in its goal towards creating a positive environment for young people to grow and develop and helping them reach their full potential.

As part of RBC Wealth Management’s commitment to the community the staff held a dress-down fundraiser in support of the CIYDC.  Staff were extremely supportive of the initiative and came into work dressed for the occasion and generously donated their time and funds towards the worthy cause.

Director of CIYDC Sylvia Wilks commented, “We are delighted that RBC has become an asset patron of CIYDC. Their generous contribution has helped us to accomplish our goals and we are extremely grateful for their support and that they have acknowledged the importance of our cause. The support of local businesses like RBC Wealth Management is key for the continued development and success of our organization.  On the behalf of CIYDC I would like to extend a huge thank you to RBC Wealth Management for recognizing the importance of our youth.”

Regional Head of Operational Risk at RBC Wealth Management Mrs. Sheena Thompson commented, “Helping students maximize their full potential is a great way to invest in our future and we are thrilled to have had the opportunity to come together as a team to support the CIYDC’s mentoring, afterschool, summer and weekend programs as well as those geared towards offering students job shadowing and work experience opportunities.  RBC Wealth management is an avid supporter of youth development and we are empowered by giving back to the community.”
