Students are referred to our program from over 35 schools in Surrey, New Westminster, and Delta.  Referrals are made by school counselors, teachers, administrators, youth workers, or other social service agencies. Students come from diverse cultural and socioeconomic backgrounds and often face multiple barriers to success:  poverty, mental health issues, addiction, low self esteem, family conflict, medical issues, learning problems, and trauma. 

We are inclusive and promote tolerance and acceptance, and welcome referrals from all backgrounds regardless of race, gender identity and expression, socioeconomic status, physical disability, or religious beliefs.  We assist approximately 200 – 250 students per year.

We provide so much more than ‘just a grad outfit’ – students who attend our program are more motivated to stay in school and graduate.
