About sos outreach
When we humbly began more than 25 years ago, we took 15 kids from the big city of Denver to the fresh air of Vail Mountain to snowboard for the first time. Those kids left that day forever inspired by the transformative power of the outdoors.
Over two decades later, we’ve grown SOS Outreach into a national nonprofit spanning from the Cascades to the Sierras to the Rockies to the Midwestern hills—serving more than 4,000 youth each year across 15 locations in 9 states, and offering year-round programming at several of our sites.
Our life-changing programs combine outdoor exploration, positive adult mentorship, leadership skills and community service to help youth discover joy, feel included, overcome challenges, improve their mental health, and become strong leaders.
Our Mission & Vision
Here at SOS, we change young lives, building character and leadership in underserved kids through mentoring outdoors.
It is our vision to make sure every kid we meet gets stronger.
