Campus Programming

SOAR: Support, Opportunity, Advocacy, Retention

The SOAR Program at Manor College was designed to assist students who have experienced foster care or who qualify as independent or unaccompanied by providing resources to aid in their journey to obtaining a college degree. Students who participate in the program will have a dedicated point of contact at the college who will help them to navigate the higher education process and to guide them through their time at Manor College. Our goal is to SUPPORT students, while providing OPPORTUNITIES for success, being an ADVOCATE, and helping keep them RETAINED through graduation.

The SOAR program encourages students to see and reach their potential and be a positive example for others who have had experience with the system.

Special Invites: Students enrolled in the SOAR program will get invites to exclusive SOAR events, like pizza parties, special off-campus events, meet and greets, and more!
