Our staff sets us apart. VOBS instructors are passionate educators and experienced wilderness travelers who receive more than 500 hours of pre-employment and apprenticeship training in Outward Bound’s time-tested philosophy, process, lessons and program structures. Their ability to build relationships and support students through these challenges is unparalleled.
It is the people that make Outward Bound the powerful change agent that it is - and has been for over 75 years. Our vibrant culture is comprised of individuals who are passionate about personal and professional growth, committed to serving others and excel at finding joy working with students in both urban environments and remote wilderness areas. Our work is demanding. We believe what sets us apart from the competition is Outward Bound’s core values and the enduring dedication of our professional staff. We teach to and work by the cornerstone values of compassion, integrity, excellence, inclusion and diversity.
