SOAR for Youth, a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization, was established in 2009 to provide high quality support, opportunities, and rapport that foster youth would have otherwise received from their parents.
Through a three-year summer residential pre-collegiate program and additional years of academic support, SOAR teaches, coaches, and counsels our young people (grades 6 -12) in academics, life skills, leadership, emotional intelligence, and career development.
These third-year students had attended a "True Colors" temperament workshop last year. The program director wanted a deeper look, this year, into how knowledge of temperament can be applied to communication.
I've been working with Mary Miscisin's Personality Lingo system (based on True Colors and enhanced in several ways). Gina Snyder, who has worked with SOAR, contacted me about teaching this workshop.
I was delighted to have the opportunity to talk to the students.
