SOAR Student Profiles

"I chose SOAR to learn how to live as an adult and to find out what is my purpose in life."

My favorite things about SOAR are the job training we do Mondays through Thursdays, the field trips we go on, and the fun things we do on Fridays for example: going to the gym to either run around on the track or to lift weights, the extra desserts we get, and going to the game room in the commuter lounge.

When I am not at SOAR I relax, watch TV, play around on my I-pad mini 1, and play with my 3 toy collections for example: Power Rangers, Transformers, and Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles.

My two previous job trainings on campus were working in the bakery department to package baked goods for the first semester with Mrs. Candy, and for the 2nd semester I worked as a mail carrier to organize letters by mailbox numbers and to deliver packages and letters throughout the campus with Mr. John Ferraro. My new job training on campus for this year is working in the math and psychology departments doing various tasks such as assisting the secretary shredding papers and collecting mail.
