Outward Bound expeditions are transformative life experiences. With a supportive crew, and the outdoors as their teacher, students learn to dig deep to find greater compassion for each other, and to push the limits of what they thought they could do. At Outward Bound, teens and adults embark on a journey measured not just in miles of mountain, river, desert or ocean, but in pivotal personal growth.
We strive to lead and serve with compassion and to instill this desire in our students.
Outward Bound graduates return to then excel in conference rooms and the corridors of societal change, inspired and equipped to lead boldly, serve generously, and act with compassion.
Learning how to go beyond our limits.
Caring for others as much as we care for ourselves.
Bringing Outward Bound to everyone, everywhere.
Leading in service to others.
Meeting challenges and pursuing personal growth.
"Knowing that Outward Bound impacts the lives of young people across the country in a positive way is the reason I show up for work every day. Then seeing those young people go out into the world and make a positive impact in their communities—that’s why we’re here." – Josh Brankman, Executive Director, Outward Bound USA
