The Philadelphia Outward Bound School is deeply embedded in community – working with young people and adults: students, educators, school administrators and business, corporate and community leaders.
The world’s oldest and largest adventure based education program founded during World War II in Great Britain, Outward Bound is the premier provider of experience-based outdoor leadership programs for youth and adults. The center of Outward Bound’s educational philosophy is the belief that for young people to succeed, they need character growth and skills to assume leadership roles and take positive approaches to life’s challenges. By engaging students in demanding situations, often in unfamiliar environments, Outward Bound allows students to develop as leaders while also encouraging self-reliance, physical fitness, craftsmanship, service to those in need and the environment and, above all, compassion.
The mission is to change lives through challenge and discovery. Outward Bound Philadelphia helps our students to discover that there is more in them than they thought and to learn a strength of character, ability to lead and desire to serve.
This cause is very dear to us, and we appreciate all the support we can get! Together we can make a difference!
