The RUN program is designed to motivate students who have been marginalized as a result of economics, ethnicity, family or personal circumstances, health issues or a disability to consider post-secondary education as a genuine option for their own future.   The program makes post-secondary education familiar, accessible and non-threatening.

The Pathways to Education program is a recognized best practice that ensures a far greater proportion of at-risk young people will successfully complete high school, continue on to post-secondary programs and become actively engaged in their career development.
