SOL Program


Child I'm here for you!

SOL makes big promises—and it keeps them.

SOL – Success - Opportunity - Leadership – is a school-based program that supports the success of at-risk youth ages 8 to 13, while keeping them away from drugs and delinquency. More than just an afterschool program, the key to SOL’s effectiveness is its intensive services. Each child is matched to a case manager who becomes a supportive and consistent presence in his/her life. Case managers work with families, too, connecting parents with needed services, as well as their child’s school.

SOL's broad services focus on prevention and early intervention:

  • Case management support
  • Educational support, including tutoring/homework assistance and other afterschool activities
  • Mentoring
  • Recreation, cultural events, life-skills and leadership development
  • Family services include counseling, parenting skills training and identification and treatment of substance abuse
  • Community policing services engage officers in more frequent patrols around participating schools and makes them familiar with enrolled children and families
  • Advocacy and intervention on behalf of youth involved in the juvenile justice system
