WORKING TOGETHER TO MAKE RIGHT CHOICES
Participating in S.O.N. Foundation has enhanced my observance of community awareness and allowed me to get an even better feel for my community.
Really enjoy learning leadership skills!!!!
Our Systems Change strategy is geared towards shifting perceptions of urban young adults from social liabilities to economic assets, shifting employer practices to broaden talent sourcing and hiring, and shifting public policies to support enterprising career pathways.
Adult programs are designed to enhance skills and promote social interaction, community engagement, and physical activity. Typical adult programs include:

I learned about S.O.N. Foundation through a job fair I went to in Genesee County. From then on, I was inspired to get involved to support.

STRATEGIES FOR CHILDREN
Any effective strategy for children must recognize and address the challenges confronting their parents, along with the broader array of community factors and service systems that affect children directly and their parents’ ability to support them. And because children’s health and development are shaped by many factors, outcomes in one area (such as nutrition or school readiness) are affected by actions in other areas (such as work supports or community violence prevention). Solutions require looking beyond narrow definitions of children’s issues and cutting through conventional policy boundaries to find the most cost-effective ways to deploy public resources as part of a coordinated strategy.
