From the very beginning, we knew the change we wanted for young people would require the creation and mobilisation of a community – and that’s exactly what sustains this movement. The soar community is powered by a tribe of forward thinking, courageous and generous people who keep the movement energised and reaching thousands of young people each year. This group come from different countries, sectors and walks of life but are united by their passion to see young people in this country thrive. Their support at whatever stage in this journey is the reason we can continue to impact so many. We are endlessly grateful.
