Philadelphia Outward Bound School (POBS) is a Pennsylvania 501(c)(3) non-profit educational organization with a mission to change lives through challenge and discovery.  

In 1992, Philadelphia leaders, including former Mayor Michael Nutter, established POBS to help our region’s young people succeed in school and life through outdoor education programs that build powerful socialemotional and leadership skills. Over the past 30 years, POBS has delivered Outward Bound’s internationally acclaimed programming to over 75,000 students in one-day programs at our locations in Philadelphia and multi-day expeditions along the Appalachian Trail and the Delaware River.

Most of our students attend School District of Philadelphia middle and high schools, and over 80% come from low-income households in the Philadelphia region. Support from individuals and organizations helps underwrite our programs and impacts thousands of students every year.

Corporate sponsorship affords your organization the opportunity to build brand awareness around this high profile event while supporting the mission of the Philadelphia Outward Bound School, a leading youth-serving nonprofit in the region. Not only will you be giving back to the community, you also receive the ultimate perk of participating in the 30-story rappel!
Sponsor benefits and exposure opportunities can be customized to align with your company’s goals.

Is your team ready to go over the edge? Create a corporate rappel team and take on this once in a lifetime opportunity by scaling one of Philadelphia’s iconic skyscrapers, while raising funds to deliver programming that helps local youth discover their full potential. Here are some ideas to make the most of this opportunity: 
  • Match the funds your team raises
  • Sponsor your team
  • Challenge your boss to be a “Fearless Leader” and go over the edge!
