Check out some of the inspiring stories that our SOLE Leadership Team has shared about their passions.

Our "SWITCH Adventure" program has been created and piloted by college leaders.  We develop leadership and mentoring skills in college students so they can influence and equip 7th-9th grade students with critical social and emotional skills to live purposeful lives. 

Jackie Foster was one of our first three mentors, and led a team to create an assembly for 750 teens titled: SOLE Talk: Cyberbullying Virus. She also generously gave her time to share her story, which is now empowering thousands of teens to “take the high road” in response to negativity. Recently, Jackie was a finalist on the show, “The Voice”, using her passion to influence others. Jackie walks her talk, a true role model to our youth.
