Our instructors made this experience more than I ever expected. I couldn’t ask for better leaders. Not only were they effective, but two of the most kind, patient and respectful people I have ever met.

This custom leadership program pairs a group of students with Outward Bound on a regular basis. Our staff apply their experiential expertise over time, enabling us to reinforce your student’s critical thinking, communication, collaboration and other 21st Century Learning Skills. Curriculum can cover themes like the environment, team-building or communication. Launch is perfect for student leadership teams, service learning groups or out-of-school-time programs!
