On March 20, 2012, Fundy Royal MP Rob Moore visited Cassidy Lake to announce new funding for a Portage Atlantic graduate to participate in the Senior Mentor Program. The Senior Mentor Program is a social reintegration initiative in which Portage graduates obtain valuable work experience that helps them to transition back into the workforce or back to their studies as confident, skilled, and productive members of society.

Through the program, youth who have completed their rehabilitation therapy at Portage are employed as mentors for new residents at Cassidy Lake during a 26-week period. Working 40 hours a week, they assist new residents with their adjustment into the residential therapeutic community and help them make the most of their treatment.
