Program Impact

From the beginning, SOS Outreach’s approach has been rooted in research. Recently, we completed a study analyzing the effectiveness of our programs over the past 10 years. The results prove unequivocally that SOS programs lead to more kids who graduate high school, attend college, find careers and give back to their communities.

“[SOS] is truly a life-changing experience for the students and an incentive for them to improve and excel. Participating in this new activity encouraged them to want to try other new things, and improved their self-esteem and self-confidence because even though it was hard at first, they learned that you keep on trying and that failing one time does not make you a failure.”
-Ida Daniels, Denver Public Schools
