Springboard

Springboard is a programme specific to 18-25 year olds and focuses on providing guidance and opportunities around education, vocational training and employment as well as offering support mentoring and career placement opportunities in the near future.

The programme also delivers essential ‘life skills’ and supports members in their transition into adulthood and independence. It’s an optional programme which allows Springboarders to dip in and out, when and if needed.
