SOAR’s Mentoring and Professional Development Program, established in May 2014, provides insight, motivation, support, and education to children and young adults who need guidance.

Working individually with children, adolescents and young adults, Program volunteers learn the strengths and interests of the children and develop personal programs that will empower them to reach their desired goals.

Below are some of the primary components used with the older students, which will begin with a self-reflective assessment. The assessment will be used as a building tool for both student and teacher as the foundation to track progress and encourage students to continuously utilize and revisit the assessment throughout their education as well as their ongoing career and personal development:

  • Resume building
  • Interviewing skills
  • Interview attire
  • Knowing the prospective employers
  • Researching potential employers
  • International job and internship opportunities
  • Public speaking
