SOAR Career Solutions, formerly known as Project SOAR, started out as a YWCA program in 1980. The focus was to help homemakers who were looking for a job but did not possess the skills, experience or self-concept necessary to secure employment. In 1983, it became a private, non-profit organization. Since then, SOAR has been providing affordable, holistic and creative career planning services to job seekers and career changers in Duluth and the surrounding area.
