The Community for Personal Development

The purpose of The Community for Personal Development, Inc., is to provide education activities and programs focusing on personal development to enrich the personal and professional lives of its members.  The weekend workshop is an outgrowth of Understanding Yourself and Others, a program developed in the 1980s.  Our Board of Advisors, Director, Coaches and volunteers present this workshop under the name of “The Breakthrough Weekend” in Gainesville, Florida.

The Community for Personal Development, Inc. is a Florida not-for-profit corporation which has been recognized by the Internal Revenue Service as a tax-exempt organization according to Section 501 (c) (3) of the Internal Revenue code.

Our community depends on the proper balance of leadership and volunteerism. Assistants are volunteers who help and support the Workshop Coaches and the Board of Advisors with The Breakthrough Weekend.  All of the Assistants have already completed this course or one in similar nature.

As a graduate of Breakthrough, they have the ability come back to the course on an unlimited basis and help students on their journey through the weekend as well as continue to gather information that the Coaches teach to continually work on their own overall well being.

Once you attend The Breakthrough Weekend as a student you will discover what an amazing group of people the Breakthrough community is.  You will experience a connection to an on-going healthy community and the joy playing on a team and making things happen.
