Uptown SOAR Off to a Great Start

The Urban League of Greater Cincinnati is beginning the second week of the Uptown SOAR Program.  The program has exceeded all goals regarding recruitment and enrollment, and is on pace to exceed the goal for program completion.

Uptown SOAR recruited 53 Uptown residents and enrolled a class of 25 on Monday, February 11, 2013. As of the start of Week 2, there are still 24 individuals participating. in the program. During the first week students discussed conflict resolution, thought processes for success, a stand and deliver public speaking exercise, and a module on decision making. Students were also provided with a legal clinic offered by Ohio Justice and Policy Center, and received professional business attire provided by Dress 4 Success and the Urban League’s Suit Yourself Clothing Closet. Attached are a few pictures of the class from this morning. This class will graduate on February 28th at 12 noon at the Urban League and we would love for you to attend. Below are pictures from Week 1.
