SOS is a non-profit organization aimed at building character and self-esteem in youth through outdoor activities and the SOS curriculum. SOS program integrates 5 core values: courage, discipline, integrity, wisdom and compassion.
No matter what social, societal, or economic barriers exist—SOS Outreach believes every child deserves the opportunity to thrive. They start with powerful outdoor experiences. Because it’s on the slopes or the trail that kids unearth the courage to step outside of their comfort zones, discover new strengths within themselves and develop lifelong skills. Through their proven 10-year curriculum, they empower kids in our communities to discover their true potential. Serving 4,000+ youth each year, across 15 locations in 9 states, SOS provides opportunities for personal growth for the kids in our communities who need it most.
