(PIX11) -- The SOS Outreach program serves 5,000 at-risk  youths between the ages of 8 and 18, annually. They are a youth development, non-profit organization that uses year-round, outdoor sports to engage students in long-term mentor based relationships.

Their core value curriculum integrates outdoor experiential learning, character development, community service, value-based leadership development, social justice advocacy, and peer mentoring.

The programs encouraged each participant to transform themselves and others for the better by using their six core values: courage, discipline, integrity, wisdom, compassion, and humility.

    I would like to nominate Francis Nazario of the queens veterans center located at75-108 91st st in Woodlawn queens. Mrs nazario spends countless hours counseling veterans from all branches, from different wars, with different problems, from pass, this, and a host of other injuries, physical and pycologcal. Always there for a soldier veteran. It would be great for someone to be there for her.
