Inspire Bold Futures in 2022!

The Compass Rose Circle is a way for individuals to give back, at various levels, in support of Outward Bound. We invite you to join and connect with others who share your passion for life-changing experiences in the outdoors. This year’s membership includes special recognition at our 60th Anniversary Celebration event on September 14, 2022.

We’re taking bold steps as leaders in experiential education, and we want you to be a part of it. When you join the Compass Rose Circle, you support these important 2022 initiatives: 

  • Nature-based programming elevated by the science of learning and development
  • Access and opportunity in new and continued partnerships with schools and youth-serving organizations
  • Innovation in experiential education with virtual classrooms and learning tools that improve access and equity

Annual benefits include:

  • Access to news and updates from OBUSA and its regional Schools
  • Opportunities for meaningful engagement with Outward Bound’s leaders, staff and students
  • Unique ways to participate in national events.

Together, we can help youth, adolescents and adults pursue lives of purpose and compassion.
