Teens to Gain Confidence, Independence in July’s ‘SOAR’ Program at EastersealsRead Now
Local teens with special needs are invited to SOAR through summer with fun and confidence-building activities this July with Easterseals Northeast Central Florida.
Easterseals will be hosting SOAR (School’s Out Afternoon Recreation), which will be offered in collaboration with YMCA, from July 13 through 31. The mini-program will be from 1 – 5 p.m. Monday through Friday at Easterseals Daytona Center, 1219 Dunn Avenue in Daytona Beach. The registration fee is $50 but will be waived for the first 5 clients with completed registration packets and financial assistance may be available for those who qualify.
SOAR is for teens with special needs who are ready to pursue a higher level of independence in the areas of life skills, social skills, health, and wellness and successfully preparing for the workplace. The program is designed to encourage young people to their next level of independence and help them gain confidence in their abilities. Highly trained Easterseals employees who specialize in working with children and young adults with disabilities will staff the program.
SOAR’s July mini-program is a precursor to a fall 2020 SOAR program in August and September and will be in an after-school program format.
Parents and caregivers are encouraged to sign up for July or fall SOAR programs by contacting program coordinator Davine Vincent at (386) 944-7815 or email@example.com.

It is important for us to gain our own confidence. If we can get our confidence through independence, then I suggest that we try that. I mean, I know that there are people who are still scared of being adults, and it is completely understandable. I just hope that we can go and confront them. Once we go independent, I believe that life will get a lot easier, that is what I absolutely believe in, I hope that it all works out.
