Our programs begin in the 8th grade and progresses through a student’s high school and post-secondary education. It places a strong emphasis on service to develop the whole person. Partnerships with schools, businesses, non-governmental organizations (NGO’s) and government provide opportunities for program implementation as well as mentoring and real-world leadership opportunities.
