Happy November! Today marks the start of our year-end giving campaign and we need your help to continue our impactful work.
Here at SOS, we do so much more than one word can explain. It’s more than skiing/riding, it’s more than mentorship, it’s mentorship elevated.
We build connections on the mountain that grow deeper when we are doing community service together or in skill-building workshops. We are not one word, one person, one year or one community – we are a family for a lifetime.
From now until the end of the year, we need your support. Your donation directly supports over 3,000 youth in life-changing mentoring relationships.
And with a $50,000 match from Vail Resorts, for every dollar you give, SOS gets two!
From events, to community giving days, to donating, there are many ways you can show your support for SOS youth. Scroll below to see all the ways you can get involved before the year’s end.
In the meantime…
Spread the Love!
Live PC Give PC is this Friday, Nov. 3!

SOS alumni are rad! Pictured here on the left is Summit County alum, Javier meeting with some Colorado SOS program staff.
Last year, Javier started an adult mountain access program through Colorado Mountain Dreamers, an organization he founded and runs.
According to Javier, half the adults who participated in the access program last year were parents of SOS participants. This work is meaningful and significant, and it’s incredible to see Javier leading the way.
