The Breakthrough program works with a group of up to 12 people, accepted and completed on a continual basis. Throughout this time you will have opportunity to assess your strengths and areas in which you would like to grow. With the support of mentors you will work through the struggles that arise.

You will be given support as you complete various workshops, seminars and job placement while you work on areas that you would like to set personal goals for growth and success in. Seminars will help to enhance existing skills and develop new skills. Key learning opportunities in the program will be through mentoring support, experiential learning, reflective questions, new experiences and volunteerism.
