4-YEAR SUMMIT COUNTY PARTICIPANT
Thomas began his SOS journey as a first-year Jr Mentor in the 2020/21 winter season. Although he was much newer to the program than many other SOS participants, Thomas dove in head first and took on his responsibilities as a Jr Mentor with enthusiasm and confidence. Thomas takes a great deal of pride in serving as a role model for younger participants. He goes above and beyond to engage younger participants, share his positive attitude and takes on additional responsibilities to help others. Former Summit County Program Manager, Brooke Carlsen notes “Thomas is a fierce friend to those who he interacts with and we are lucky to have him as a compassionate, wise, and strong young role model for everyone in our program”. Thomas exemplifies so much of what SOS stands for and is looking forward to yet another incredible winter season with SOS.
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
As youth graduate after five years in the Mentor Program, they 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.
