Participants have the opportunity to develop leadership skills, increase self-confidence, meet community leaders and network with their peers from Maine and Quebec.

The program is designed for young adults who are entering the job force or in the job force beyond entry level but not yet in management roles. The program includes lodging, meals, the leadership program and white-water rafting.
