Mission Statement

SOS Outreach inspires youth to make positive decisions for healthy and successful lives.

Description

SOS Outreach was founded in 1993 in Colorado's Vail Valley. As a nonprofit organization, SOS programs build character and self-esteem in youth through outdoor activities and the SOS curriculum. SOS served 4,888 youth in 15 states and New Zealand during the 2010-2011 fiscal year and offered 18,917 total program days.

SOS began as the Snowboard Outreach Society, with a group of snowboarders who wanted to expose underprivileged youth to the mountains, as well as to the sport of snowboarding. Since its founding, SOS has expanded across individual winter sports to include skiing, snowboarding and snowshoeing while incorporating a youth development curriculum.

In 2009, SOS merged with Meet the Wilderness, an organization based in summer adventure programs.The merger ensured that 2,000 additional youth are served through predominately summer outdoor adventure education programs. As a combined organization, SOS is positioned to efficiently provide year-round programming to underserved youth.
