Leadership Academy

The SOAR Leadership Academy, in partnership with Frelinghuysen Middle School and area colleges, will assist in preparing middle school students, who participated in the 5th Grade After School Program.

• Increase motivation toward higher education• Promote personal success

 • Expand career awareness and knowledge of the world

 • Enhance personal wellness

Students will also have opportunities to take action on important social issues, to work alongside community leaders, and to make a positive impact on their school’s climate and their community. Students will gain a better understanding of who they are and who they aspire to become. 

We seek to accomplish these goals through developmental workshops, leadership activities and experiential learning trips. Emphasis will be placed on students with limited exposure to college, minority students, students who would be first generation college students, and/or students from low socio-economic backgrounds. 

At the end of the program, students will have the opportunity to participate in an all-day team building exercise, that will provide students the opportunity to implement the teamwork, leadership and communications, skills, creativity, courage and confidence they gained throughout the program.
