This is a grant/scholarship opportunity provided to young adults who have completed high school, and have faced or are facing certain challenges or obstacles in their lives which may be preventing them from moving forward into the world of education and/or a career.

There are paid and unpaid work experience opportunities available locally after completing courses and passing final exams.
