Project SOAR

Decrease truancy. Increase graduation rates. Guide our youth to success.

Background


More than 80% of all African American students enrolled in the MMSD are below the federal poverty level and qualify for free and reduced lunches.

What does this mean for our youth? Far too many African American children spend the majority of their day trying to figure out how to raise, feed and protect their siblings.

Project SOAR (Student Opportunities, Access and Readiness) targets African-American male students between the ages of 12 and 17, who attend a middle school or high school in the Madison Metropolitan School District. The students will gain a positive self-perception, identify SMART (Specific, Measurable, Attainable, Realistic, Timely) career goals, develop skills to influence others and build a support network.

“The vast majority of African American male students in Madison have experienced poverty and its resulting symptoms such as unstable housing, inadequate health care and escalating community violence. All of these factors and more contribute to chronic absenteeism. We are committed to being positive role models in these students’ lives and ensure they are on a path to stay in school and graduate.”

- Dr. Floyd S. Rose, President
