4 Key Motivations For Young People Choosing To Join Outward Bound
I always receive first hand feedback from parents and companies, telling us how their children and employees have been benefited from our programmes. As a Marketing and Web Officer, the best part of my role is to capture the exciting moments of outdoor challenges and hearing stories from people after a programme. Stories can be incredibly moving with people from children, young people, developing graduates, emerging leaders to first line managers to tell me what they have done, what they have learnt, and how they plan to use them in future or in career.
Outward bound programmes are not summer camps or guided tours. We are a global organisation, leading the outdoor experiential education in the globe for a half century. Through programme elements and international processing of the experience, participants come away with an enduring understanding of their abilities and values. The transference of the wilderness experience to life at home, at school, or at the workplace becomes essential. The result for participants of all ages and all walks of life is renewed or discovered strength of character, leadership, and service.
