The primary mission and the soul of the Outdoor Odyseey (OO) Organization is the mentoring Program. Since 1999, they have matched over 2500 mentors with thousands of youngsters from our area in South Western Pennsylvania. In February, the application for mentoring becomes available. Following the submissions of the application, OO will conduct interviews in the High School with the students. If selected as a mentor, students will attend a week long leadership accademy to enhance their mentoring skills and then an additional week with their mentorees to begin the bonding required of the 'job' of mentoring a child.
