Meeting individuals who share a passion for advancement will broaden my understanding of this world and add depth to the project I am working on.”
Millennium Fellowship Project: SOAR (Skating Opportunities for Adolescents, Rising)
SOAR (Skating Opportunities for Adolescents, Rising) is a program giving youth in the wider Philadelphia community an opportunity to learn how to figure skate and the importance of health and wellness. Through hosting on-ice sessions, off-ice conditioning, and workshops about health and wellness, it will give youth a chance to improve their health, confidence, teamwork, and leadership skills by setting goals and planning for their future.
