Outward Bound for Veterans helps returning service members and recent veterans readjust to life at home through powerful wilderness courses that draw on the healing benefit of teamwork and challenge through use of the natural world. 

These fully-funded expeditions purposefully scaffold wartime experiences with authentic achievements to create positive emotional and mental outcomes. Many veterans experienced courage, brotherhood and a real sense of power and competence while in combat. Outward Bound gives Veterans and service members the opportunity to re-experience these strengths in themselves in a different context, helping them to transition back to civilian life.
