There’s Nothing Holding You Back

Congratulations to the 2024 Adolescent Skills Center graduates!

Last Friday, motivated young people, program staff and partners, families, and friends gathered at Vibrant’s headquarters for a graduation ceremony.

Marking the largest graduating class at Vibrant to date, the day honored the achievement of 45 earned high school equivalent degrees this school year!

Beyond academic success, program participants experienced emotional growth as they embraced invaluable support throughout their journeys.

“There’s more than one way to solve a problem. You don’t have to take a straight path to get to where you’re going. Sometimes you might need a little bit more help, and that’s okay.” – Rob Vanden Heuval, Assistant Principal, ReStart Academy

At Vibrant’s Adolescent Skills Centers, counselors provide emotional and behavioral care to participants of ReStart Academy, which prepares young people to succeed in the world of work through vocational training and educational programs.

Students received awards that acknowledged their academic successes, personal growths, and innate strengths and personality traits, encouraging them to be true to themselves.

“There may have been times where you didn’t believe in yourselves, but that changed. That was just a chapter in your lives, and now you’re turning the page to a new chapter where you’re going to take that hope and hopefully spread it to others.”- Carleton Archer, MPA, LMFT, M.Div., VP of Operations, Vibrant Emotional Health

Congrats, grads! As you step forward into the next chapter of your lives, remember the strength and resilience you’ve cultivated. 

Your futures are bright with possibilities, and we applaud your hard work and determination. Here’s to your continued success and all that lies ahead!
