Workshops

Soar creates and delivers early intervention-preventative, wellness workshops for young people aged 12 to 18 years from all backgrounds. Our workshops empower young people to thrive, believe in themselves and fulfil their true potential. Within a safe and supportive environment, they are given the opportunity to be themselves and explore any challenges that hold them back from doing so.
Our workshops run from 10am – 1pm and are available Tuesday to Friday. The workshop is broken into three sections with two short 10 minute breaks in between.

T.Y. Workshop

The transition year program is an early intervention wellness workshop for young adults to explore what it means to be themselves, build self- confidence and self-belief.

Soar believes that all young people have the potential for greatness. The T.Y. workshop is an environment where young people get to examine the social influences that shape how they behave, understand which ones serve them and which ones hold them back, and then choose which to incorporate into their lives. This is a space where young people get to exercise the muscles of emotional awareness by having honest conversations about what’s going on for them, practicing how to acknowledge greatness in one another and take ownership over their lives.
