COMMUNITY STORIES AT THE PLACE SOAR TV

BECAUSE WE COMMUNICATE AND CONNECT THROUGH OUR VOICES.

The Place to SOAR TV is about sharing community stories and seeing life through a different lens.


Communities are filled with all kinds of stories of people doing incredible things to engage, enrich, and connect to the lives of others. The Place to SOAR TV is dedicated to capturing those stories.

The Place to SOAR TV also features guests from diverse backgrounds – professionally, socially and culturally – hailing from local communities and beyond.  The topics often reflect the SOAR Values and guests openly share their life experiences, transitions, self-discoveries, lessons learned and why they do what they do. Since its inception guests have included authors, artists, business owners, mental health professionals, entrepreneurs, clergy, police officers, and more.

SOAR YOUTH EMPOWERMENT PROGRAM (SOAR-YEP)

BECAUSE YOUTH BENEFIT FROM COACHING AND PERSONAL DEVELOPMENT

The Place to SOAR offers a signature
SOAR Youth Empowerment Program.


Today’s youth face many challenges – struggles with confidence, fear of failure, and bullying. SOAR-YEP was created to do something about it!

In addition the hallmark of the SOAR Youth Empowerment Program is its participation in the John Maxwell Team Global Youth Initiative. Since its inception the SOAR Youth Empowerment Program has partnered with multiple community based youth organizations in the Pittsburgh area.

Summer 2020: Clifton StrengthsExplorer

Youth Enrichment Services. Youth Enrichment Services (YES) paints a bright future out of uncertainty so young people from inner-city and urban communities see a portrait of themselves as successful, empowered, and confident leaders. Clifton StrengthsExplorer helped teens discover and apply their strengths and talents to a community-based research project on Health Literacy. This was a six-week program.

Summer 2019: Your True Strength Workshop

Art in the Garden. OMA Pittsburgh’s first program for youth. Our programming invests in the resiliency and social and emotional well-being of youth. Above all, Art in the Garden seeks to enable youth to grow in their understanding of connectedness to themselves, each other, and our earth.

Anita, the work you did with teens at Art in the Garden was transformational. They adored you and I am so grateful to you. Thank you thank you thank you.

Emily Carson, Director Art in the Garden

Braddock Youth Project. Each summer, BYP youth are part of a team that plans and executes the annual Youth Garden Summit. Youth growers come together to share their experiences working on farms and gardens in the Greater Pittsburgh area.

Greater Valley Community Services. A space created for people in Braddock and surrounding communities where families feel safe; where collaborative programs are ready to help meet the needs of the community no matter what the age or background.
