SOAR (Success, Opportunity, Advocacy and Responsibility) is designed to support high-school students land their dream first-job or volunteer opportunity. SOAR operates from September to April and students will be required to attend a combination of 1:1 meetings and small group meetings, which will help the student grow in all areas of life. The key areas of growth will be: confidence, real-world experience and creating a plan for the future.
