The city is accepting applications for its Successful Outcomes After Release (SOAR) program through 11:59 p.m. Jan. 18, 2021.

SOAR is a six-month program that provides gainful employment to returning citizens while supplementing the city's existing workforce. To be eligible, an applicant must be a resident of Winston-Salem, have at least one prior conviction, and must have at least six months’ work experience since the last conviction or have successfully completed a job-training/re-entry program. 

Participants receive coaching and training in life skills such as goal setting, planning, interpersonal relationships, financial management, communication, job-search techniques and resume writing. Participants who lack a high school diploma receive assistance in getting a GED.

Applicants must also pass a drug test, consent to a background check, be registered with selective service (males only), and be able to work 32 hours a week (Monday - Friday).

An application for the SOAR program is available by going to CityofWS.org and clicking on the “Jobs” button. For more information about SOAR, go to CityofWS.org/SOAR or contact Troy Sneed, 336-306-4320; troys@cityofws.org.
