SOAR Program Accepting Applications

The city is accepting applications for its Successful Outcomes After Release (SOAR) program through 11:59 p.m. on Aug. 4, 2021.

SOAR is a six-month program that provides gainful employment to returning citizens while supplementing the city's existing workforce.

Participants also 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.

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.

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 link and more information is posted at CityofWS.org/SOAR. Interested citizens can contact Troy Sneed, 336-306-4320; and/or  email troys@cityofws.org
