"I made a lot of mistakes, but I learned from those mistakes. Coming to Rubicon taught me a lot about taking responsibility."
Rubicon's mission is to equip people to break the cycle of poverty. Our work, however, goes beyond simply getting a job. We support our participants to build rich and fulfilling lives outside of our walls as well. Our participants are building positive professional and personal networks, and becoming change agents in their own communities.
