SOARing to new territory
With the job market in today's PE word, it is important for phys ed undergrads to think of other things they can do with their degrees. While researching this topic, I came across a program called SOAR. SOAR stands for Success Oriented Achievement Realized and helps teens and young adults who have learning disabilities and or AD/HD. In the program, kids are taken out into the woods to camp and try high adventure activities. With a PE degree, many of our orienteering and project adventure units would help us to know how to handle the kids, which activities are useful, and be able to keep the kids physically active.
