Whose Life is it, My Life.

RHW utilizes a holistic approach that combines physical, mental and vocational training to promote overall well-being and empower youth for long-term employment.

RHW's program develops physical and mental well-being through structured run training and deliberate meditation, and prepares youth for work via life skills and work-readiness classes along with trade certifications. 

RHW youth receive stipends during the six month program along with professional mentoring and daily programming. Upon graduation, RHW youth earn job placement and ongoing employment support.
