Youth Programs

Society of Organized Services

Program deliveries January 2021 – June 2021

Child, youth and family programs are continuing at SOS, but all in-house group programs have been replaced with deliveries due to COVID-19 restrictions. Program coordinators will be delivering program materials and checking in with program participants to ensure needs are being met.

Please select specific programs below for registration information.

SOS is dedicated to our young community members who are making their transition into adulthood. We offer safe environments where youth can connect with responsible adults, receive healthy support, eat nutritious food, make new friends and learn about community resources.

In all our youth programs, we promote skills for developing self-esteem, responsibility and problem-solving.

“It has been wonderful for them to be able to develop relationships with people who are not teachers or parents. I don’t know how SOS finds the facilitators that they find but they’re amazing. It’s really that connection they have with them, they know they can talk to them about anything. That makes me feel so much better as a working parent that they have these relationships.” ~ A parent of two youth in the School Night Out and Teen Night programs.
