JOB ROLE:

Why Soar exists

The world we inhabit is undergoing change at a pace like never before. This social, political, technological, and environmental complexity requires us to prepare our teenagers differently than we did previously.

Soar exists to prepare our teenagers with the emotional and mental agility to thrive in this environment and to fulfil what they are capable of.

Soar creates and delivers preventative, character-building workshops where teenagers get to explore themselves in dynamic environments, where they can increase their self-awareness, learn how to cope with the everyday world, and develop their inner- confidence.
