In 2006, SOS Outreach launched its Learn to Ride program with just a handful of participants. With the incredible impact witnessed since then, there was a clear need for the multi-year Mentor program. Thanks to funding from the Share Winter Foundation and support from Steamboat Ski Resort, the mentor program was implemented during the 22-23 season with 130 kids and teens enrolled from Routt and Moffat counties.

LEARN TO RIDE
Kids learn a new outdoor activity and the importance of our six core values: courage, discipline, integrity, wisdom, humility, and compassion.
With the support of a dedicated mentor, participants continue outdoor activities, grow tangible life skills, perform community service, and put the core values to practice with peer groups.
HIGH SCHOOL & BEYOND
Youth have opportunities to apply the skills they’ve developed by engaging as Junior Mentors, with the Career Development Program and with the organization’s Alumni Network.
