Outdoor Outreach empowers at-risk and underprivileged youth to make positive lasting change in their lives through outdoor activities. Their programs support underserved youth in San Diego County who are at risk for school dropout, substance abuse, violence and unintended pregnancy. It is the only agency in San Diego, and one of only a few in the country, to utilize outdoor physical experiences to provide youth with the support, relationships, resources and opportunities they need to become successful adults.

In addition to a commitment to helping businesses and consumers enjoy safer technology with innovative products and a commitment to cybersecurity education, ESET has been a community business leader in San Diego since 1999.

ESET provides ongoing support for local organizations and programs that address children’s needs, education and economic vitality in the community. The company’s current philanthropic efforts include the Securing our eCity initiative, the San Diego Police Foundation’s Safety Net program, the Stephen J. Wampler Foundation, and Reality Changers.

ESET also encourages employees to get involved with the local community throughout the year, with employees volunteering at the Alpha Project, Mama’s Kitchen, Habitat for Humanity, LINK San Diego, San Diego Downtown Partnership, EDC, NCSA, San Diego Adopt-a-Family, Susan G. Komen Foundation, Movember, ASPCA, San Diego Humane Society as well as Outdoor Outreach.

The San Diego Chamber of Commerce recently awarded ESET the 2012 Business of the Year Award.  In 2010, the ESET Securing Our eCity program was awarded "Best Local/Community Plan" by the Department of Homeland Security during their National Cybersecurity Awareness Challenge.
