This quote from our 2016-17 Annual Report says so much about our youth who keep reaching: “This past year 44% of our clients were not in school prior to entering treatment”.
In that same academic year, our clients attended school on site while in treatment.
Together they achieved:
- 222 credits
- 13 high school graduations
- 2 post-secondary courses completed
- 968 community hours completed
As for scholarships, we awarded more than we have in prior years. Here are some examples of our former clients’ educational pursuits:
1st year Business & Accounting
2nd year Business Marketing
1st year Pre-Health Sciences
1st year Personal Support Worker
2nd year, Honours BA/Psychology
We are so incredibly proud of these youth who have recognized the importance of pursing a post-secondary education and seeing it as a stepping stone to bigger and better things.
