What it Means
Our logo represents the essence of the Springboard brand – that we put people at the centre of everything we do. The centre circle represents those people, and when viewed as a unit, the circles have additional meaning. They represent the ripple effect that Springboard has on the community, and also the top view of a spring, which is the jumping off point for our clients to reach their full potential and achieve their future goals.
Who We Serve
We serve a diverse group of individuals, ranging from participants with developmental disabilities, individuals referred by the courts for diversion services to NEET youth and adults (Not in Education, Employment, or Training).
The goals for the people Springboard serves include: feeling more empowered, developing skills, and reaching personal goals.
For over 40 years, Springboard has been a meeting place for passionate professionals and people looking for guidance as they achieve their full potential.
