How Students of Service (SOS) impacts San Antonio's shared Community Vision

Students of Service (SOS) fosters informed citizenship and engaged leadership in San Antonio's youth by providing middle school and high school students with the opportunity to study abroad and use what they have learned to better their own communities. Year-round, students participate in local community service prior to their summer travel experience. These trips allow students to be citizen diplomats, forging new ties with our sister cities or to serve communities abroad. This real-world, experiential learning augments what students learn in the classroom. SOS sees a world in which all young people believe in their power to make a positive difference in their communities.
