Homeless Breakthrough Academy™ May 27, 2023

May 27, 2023 @ 9:00 am - 4:00 pm

What You Don’t Know Can Hurt You.

SATURDAY, May 27, 2023 ~ Las Vegas

Hero School® Breakthrough Academy™ to Break Cycles and Rapidly Reverse Homelessness with Adults and Youth in Southern Nevada

Those stuck in Homelessness, Dependency, Downward Spirals or Repeated History will continue to erode until, tragically, they’re gone. Worse still, they will likely never be remembered.

They may receive food, shelter and services from their community, without an multidimensional experience that engages and ignites Character Change® – and then realigns their inner tumblers – their imprisoned existence continues.

Same people, same struggles, same behavior, and same costs to lives and communities, just a different day.

Hero School-certified Breakthrough Academies were designed to quickly free people from the 4 Habits of Homelessness (Todd, T., 1995), and do so for an entire group at one time, all At The Speed Of Movies™. 

No more downward spirals, wasted resources, repeated history and broken dreams. No more lost experience, decaying cognition and unrealized human potential.

Instead, communities receive graduates who are inspired earners, learners and contributors, heroes ready to seize their own opportunities and not remain perpetually dependent on people, substances or government services.

If you know someone who is stuggling in homelessness, houselessness or hopelessness, help them RSVP today at (702) 795-7000.

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™.

Business and city leaders weary from a problem that should have been solved, not one that has been turned into an industry at the expense of safety, prosperity and human lives, consider Sponsoring a student’s tuition and transformation HERE. 

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.

Do you know someone Homeless, Houseless, Hopeless?

Here’s how to know if someone you knows needs a Breakthrough Academy?

  • Answer these questions to see if the Homelessness Breakthrough Academy is for you.
  • Are gaps in education and work history leaving them further behind?
  • Do they need help earning what they want, and living like they must?
  • Do they struggle with dependency, on the wrong people, services, substances?
  • Are they stuck in endless cycles of Repeated History with jobs, jail and relationships?
  • Do you want them empowered and moving forward on their own, really fast?
  • Do they need a Magical and Lasting Heroic Experience?
  • Do YOU?
    Then HERO SCHOOL is for them. Maybe you, too.
