Through our SOAR initiative (Student Opportunities, Access and Retention) we help boost college completion rates for Hamilton County students who enroll in Chattanooga State Community College with plans to continue on to the University of Tennessee at Chattanooga to complete a 4-year bachelor’s degree.
The PEF SOAR Program provides its participants with the academic resources needed to attain their educational and professional goals. The Program seeks to enhance students’ collegiate and learning experience by developing them as students, leaders, and future professionals.
With increasing demands of the 21st-century workforce, there is little question that all students should be prepared for college, careers and life. College is starting to be defined as any post-secondary institution where a student can get a high quality degree, certificate, or other credential to help them pursuit of a career. Now, nearly every good job requires some post-secondary education and/or training – such as an associates or bachelor’s degree, certificate, license, or completion of an apprenticeship or significant on-the-job training. Come learn about the opportunities that are available in Chattanooga through Wacker, Volkswagen and other programs that can lead your student to a successful career.
Join us for this FREE session on December 10 from 12:00-1:00pm at Chattanooga State Community College.
There is an optional $5 lunch available.
PEF’s College and Career Readiness work focuses on encouraging students to attend college, and provides them and their families with support and access to help them accomplish this goal.
