Florida Programs - North Carolina Outward Bound School
of Private Matching Funds Remaining
For 45 years Florida students, teachers and adults have discovered their strength of character, ability to lead, and desire to serve through North Carolina Outward Bound courses in the Everglades, Florida’s central rivers and in the mountains of North Carolina. Help us fund more scholarships for Miami-Dade high school students and teachers for our wilderness based leadership and team-building courses. Outward Bound courses elicit empathy, grit and resilience through challenge and adventure through experiential education in the wilderness. The idea that “you are needed,” no matter who you are, is a central reason for the success of Outward Bound programs. Inclusiveness and reliance on teamwork sets an Outward Bound expedition apart from any other learning experience; expedition members are “crew, not passengers.” Self-confidence, appreciation of our mutual interdependence, environmental stewardship and a desire to make a positive difference in our lives and in the lives of others are the powerful outcomes for our students.

Outward Bound’s mission is to change lives through challenge and discovery. While perhaps ambitious and bold, our vision is a more resilient and compassionate world, with more resilient and compassionate citizens.
