Time To SOAR

Prepare To SOAR

This academy gives the third-year students tools to succeed after leaving the formal program. The focus is on learning skills that will help them become capable and independent young adults. Classes include:

Some of the SOAR youth will be close to graduating from high school by this time. They will have opportunities to visit three post-secondary educational campuses in northern California – college field trips that their parents would have given them if they could. We will introduce our young participants to emancipation services, legal services, and college scholarship programs for foster youth that can continue to provide a safety net for SOAR youth upon leaving the formal program.

Select graduates from the three-year summer program will be invited to return as academy Junior Counselors.
