27th Anniversary Homeless Breakthrough Academy!

November 12, 2022 @ 9:00 am - 4:00 pm

More than 1600 Breakthrough Academies. Dozens of Movies. Hundreds of Thousands of Heroes Born.

27 Years of Real Life Change At the Speed Of Movies™

SATURDAY, NOVEMBER 12, 2022 ~ Las Vegas, Nevada

The 27th Anniversary Breakthrough Academy™ for Homeless, Houseless and Hopeless adults and youth.

Too many people stuck in Homelessness, Dependency, Downward Spirals or Repeated History will continue to erode until they’re gone. No more opportunities. No more friendships. So much unrealized potential. Gone and forgotten.

On November 12, 2022, we will help them rewrite their story and birth their inner hero, one that can change their history and their destiny.

This is your Hero School.

In every movie, the would-be hero must overcome obstacles, adversity, heartbreak – and their own past – on the way to accomplishing an impossible goal.

Now imagine this would-be hero has been struggling in cycles of homelessness and dependency, without income, mentors or connections – or a home, transportation, identification or a positive identity – for years…

Human beings in this condition need more than good ideas, good programs or good luck.

The greatest enemy of the best is the good. -Stephen R. Covey

Settling for “the good” has left more people at risk or in cycles of homelessness than ever before.

The best thing during the worst cycles is a breakthrough.

This is a Breakthrough Academy™.

Breakthrough Academies, built on the accelerated Hero School® learning model and methodology, were first employed 27 years ago to ignite rapid and lasting change with the homeless, houseless and hopeless…At The Speed Of Movies.

Why lose 2 more years of life when you could have a breakthrough in just 2 hours?

We believe there’s more to every human’s life than what they’ve been showing.

Imagine how many educational, employment and social programs would launch out of single-digit success if a human first educational experience first ignited a desire for learning, earning and contributing in those who’ve slipped through the cracks, been constantly marginalized, continue repeating history or have given up trying.

If you know someone who needs a breakthrough, simply sponsor them through a Breakthrough Academy.

Sponsors help Breakthrough Academies remain 100% FREE for Homeless and Houseless Adults and Youth (16+)

Tuition Sponsors  help more struggling adults and youth break through.
