Foundation for Blind Children’s SOAR Program is a 9-month transition program that supports blind and visually impaired young adults as they navigate finding their first job, internship, or volunteer opportunity as they prepare for their future career. Along with our Teen-to-Work and College Prep programs, SOAR builds the tools and skills needed to live independently and to be successful in the workforce.
SOAR stands for Success, Opportunity, Advocacy, and Responsibility. The commitment for a student in the SOAR Program is September through May. Students will be required to attend a combination of 1:1 check-ins and small group workshops (virtually or in-person), which will help the student grow in all areas of life. The key areas of growth are: growth in confidence, real-world experiences, and creating a plan for the future.
FBC is thankful for the continued collaboration and partnership with Arizona Rehabilitation Services Administration to provide a program like SOAR for Vocational Rehabilitation Clients.
