Review for SOLE Effects, Poway, CA, USA
I am a parent of kids who grew up in the area, a business owner employing youths and a philanthropic and community service leader in this area. I have seen a lot of well meaning efforts to effect a needle moving change in the way today's youth deals with the myriad of stresses on them but have never seen anything quite as remarkable as what Sole Effects is doing. Really remarkable.
Leadership begins with self esteem and that is where the Switch program focuses it's attention. By identifying the many sources of attacks on self esteem and allowing the students to see it, identify what is causing it and also develop skills to defend against this, it allows leadership to fill the void. Amazing program that should be replicated nationwide in my view. This motivates our Rotary Club to grant funds to this program annually.
