This academy session gives second-year students opportunities to safely explore within the SOAR for Youth environment. The focus is on learning and growing academically and socially.
While learning skills that will help them succeed in life, the teens have time to get reacquainted with their peers from the previous year’s academy. By participating in rigorous outdoor activities, they bond, build additional trust, learn intensive teamwork, and gain greater self-esteem. Classes include:
Career night features role models from various professions such as business and law to demonstrate what one can achieve in life with determination and hard work. Departing from the academy, the youth will each take away a vision board that they have created. These boards describing their desired future will serve as a tangible reminder of what they should be striving for while away from the SOAR academies.
