Humanim’s Start On Success (SOS) Delaware is on its 3rd of 6 weeks of “virtual” programming, which provides 11 students online learning to gain work-readiness skills during the COVID-19 pandemic. Lessons are completed via video calls facilitated by Youth Transition Services Program Manager Taralauryn Porter. Students are joined by guest business leaders and employers to learn about various industries, workplace expectations, and employment opportunities. The SOS DE program recently welcomed its first virtual presenter from CLIA, Lance Porter, Global Web Development Manager, who spoke about his job and how time management plays a critical part in his success.
Start On Success program (SOS) was launched in 1997 as a way to provide career exposure and professional development to high school students with disabilities. This award-winning approach is made possible through a partnership between Humanim, the Division of Rehabilitation Services (DORS), local school systems, and numerous employer partners.
