About

SOS Outreachis looking for positive adults to be mentors for local youth in Summit County, Colorado. SOS Outreach is a youth development nonprofit that fosters self-confidence, leadership skills, and positive decision making in underserved youth. SOS programs are unique in their use of adventure sports to engage participants for future success. During program days students discuss and discover the meaning of the SOS Core Values: Courage, Discipline, Integrity, Wisdom, Compassion, andHumility - all while learning a new sport (skiing and snowboarding) with positive adult role models.

SOS Sherpas are mentors who work closely with a group of SOS youth. Sherpas are expected to support youth through five ride days at a local mountain, various service learning days, life skill workshops, and goal setting. Sherpas are active in their youths’ lives through consistent communication and are expected to act as positive role model and promote healthy decision making for youth.
