At SOAR, we help bring out the leader in all our students. Every day. All year.

Each Spring, our Amazing Shake competition puts these leadership skills to the test. From lightening-round scenario stations to the Gauntlet, the Amazing Shake teaches students the nuances of professional interaction such as how to give a proper handshake, how to "work a room," how to give a successful interview, and how to remain composed under pressure.

Many of our students do not grow up with "social capital" - environments where they are exposed to professions that call for more advanced skills and degrees.
The Amazing Shake competition not only puts them face-to-face with these professionals but facilitates a life-changing process that transfers belief from others to belief in themselves and their future.

The Amazing Shake is a unique opportunity for leaders in our community to experience the courage, confidence and potential of SOAR students and we hope YOU will join us this year!
