At Colville Place we work from an Advantaged Thinking approach and believe that everyone has a talent, the ability to be someone positive in life. With the right set of opportunities and support, we can identify and harness everyone’s talent for personal and social good. During a young person’s time at Colville Place they can focus on their goals, so they can reach their potential.

Colville Place is named after the founder of Colony 47, Jim Colville. Jim was a strong advocate for the needs of young people in the 70’s and 80’s as they sought recognition as a key group with needs in the community.
