What We Do

We assist young people to stay in school, transition back into school or transition into employment. We believe in a 50/50 attitude and approach when working with youth; we will work very hard for them, but we expect them to work very hard for themselves. Our Mission: We engage young people to transform their lives by interrupting the cycle of harm.
