TnT provides educational, social and recreational activities for youth ages 13-23 years with and without disabilities in inclusive and interactive settings. TnT is a popular offering and a great way for individuals to interact with their high school peers in a supportive social setting.

SOAR Fox Cities strives to provide an environment that facilitates and supports understanding, inclusion and acceptance between youth. 

This positive interaction between peers allows them to gain exposure to each other, which leads to understanding and results in acceptance for each person involved. All teen participants take part in large and small group activities such as singing, sharing and games, engage in cooperative learning experiences and have opportunities for leadership development.
