Cohort 13th participants accepted the challenge to transform their lives and work toward accomplishing their personal goals through exploration and application of the “8 Keys of Excellence”. They spent eight months paired with a volunteer who coached them weekly on achieving their personal goals, they attended a monthly workshop and participated in a community service project clean-up day at Fort Cunningham.

The Minister stated, “Congratulations on this accomplishment and remember your journey doesn’t end here. Continue to match behaviour and values; learn from mistakes; speak honestly and kindly; make the most of every moment; make your dreams happen; take responsibility for actions; be willing to do things differently and live your best life!”
