Sole Train’s (ST) new Mid Soles program deepens the ST footprint along TBC’s youth development and leadership pathway of healing. Having participated in ST as middle schoolers, Mid Soles are high school students employed and trained by ST staff to support Young and Old Soles in multiple capacities. This new dimension of leadership development will help ST deepen its impact in the lives of youth.
Luis, one of ST’s new Mid Soles said: “What led me to apply to be a Mid Sole is that when I was running, I didn’t have much confidence in me to run, but everyone there pushes and encourages Young Soles to run. That’s what I want to do: I want to encourage Young Soles to run and clear their thoughts because that's what happens when you run...I got my grades up and I stayed in class when I started to run for Sole Train.”
