SOS Outreach is a national youth development non-profit organization based in Colorado. Year-around, it utilizes adventure sports, such as skiing and snowboarding, to engage at-risk students in long-term mentorship relationships. The SOS curriculum encourages responsibility, self-confidence, service, and leadership skills by instilling five core values: courage, discipline, integrity, wisdom, and compassion. The curriculum encourages students to set and achieve goals while increasing their ability to combat the risk factors they face. Since 1993, we have inspired positive decision making for healthy and successful lives.
