Last week a few of SOAR's ambassadors had the opportunity to gather in Järna, Sweden for YIP's annual Initiative Forum.
"Initiative Forum is an annual conference hosted by the Youth Initiative Program in Jarna Sweden. It is hosted by and for people who want to enact positive change in the world. It is a space for learning, inspiration, networking, and collaboration. Participants can come to share and learn about initiatives for change from around the world. It combines lectures, personal stories, workshops, discussions and celebrating into a week that will awaken the intellect, warm the heart, and rejuvenate the spirit."
Following in the spirit of this gathering our team had the opportunity to give a brief presentation of SOAR's vision as well as take questions from the audience. We wanted to say a big Thank You to the organizers of Initiative Forum for creating such an inspirational 5- day event as well as giving us and so many others the space to share about our ongoing projects! We are sparked and excited to welcome in our first batch of participants for what will be surely be an exciting 6 months of learning!
Thinking about applying to SOAR? There are still a few places left!
