SoS (Share Our Secrets) is a unique life-skills development program based on the simple principle of looking at people from their point of view instead of our own. It is designed to give young professionals a platform for change.
The educational component of SoS, Life and Leadership Program (LLP), consists of 10-12 sessions held on Saturday mornings twice a month. Following each Saturday session, participants meet and learn from accomplished mentors who share their life stories over lunch. This setting provides an opportunity to ask personal questions in a small group. Many participants believe the speaker sessions are the best part of the day because they get an opportunity to see some of the SoS principles in action.
The Circle of Influence (COI) Group, formed by invitation only, has a uniquely different goal under the SoS umbrella. Consisting of people who are a little more established than the students, this group is focused on building a strong network of individuals who can help them grow professionally and personally. The COI is invited to speaker sessions and other networking events where they get a chance to get to know the students and may even become future mentors for them.
The SoS Program boasts many accomplished speakers such as Mark Ostrofsky, entrepreneur and author of “Click it Rich,” Shawn Wharton, CIO, BP NAGP; Amit Bhandari, CEO of BioUrja Trading; Felix Fraga, Houston City Council member, Somesh Singh, VP Engineering and GM India Development Center at NetIQ, Dr. Johnella Bradford, Dean – Houston Community College Southeast and many more.
