Ah yes, the classic Outward Bound Wilderness experience! Outward Bound is known around the world as the premier outdoor leadership program, taking youth into the wilderness and changing their lives through challenge and adventure. Our outdoor programs are designed to push students farther than they ever thought they could go and to show them that they can achieve more than they ever imagined. Facilitating the journey where students uncover their strengths, discover their passion for the outdoors, launch outdoor education careers or simply master a set of outdoor skills is an amazing role to play.
This stuff really works! And, many of the impactful experiences and life-changing results are delivered through our award-winning program designed specifically for troubled teens and their families, Intercept. The Intercept program provides hope to struggling families for a happier and more productive future. Our demanding wilderness expeditions take at-risk teens out of their negative routines and unhealthy environments and place them in awe-inspiring settings where they are given the tools to succeed and to forge a positive path in life. The outcomes are amazing and one of the many reasons we continue to do what we do.
Here are some recent study results that we are extremely proud of. Outward Bound
