INNOVATIVE: We are highly responsive to the individual needs of the people we serve, and embrace change, ideas and approaches that will help them to succeed.

INTEGRITY: We hold ourselves accountable to all our stakeholders for delivering on results that matter in a way that is rigorous, honest, ethical and transparent.

Our Impact

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).

  • Our Goals

    The goals for the people Springboard serves include: feeling more empowered, developing skills, and reaching personal goals.

  • Our History

    For over 40 years, Springboard has been a meeting place for passionate professionals and people looking for guidance as they achieve their full potential.
