- outward bound schools
Outward Bound is an international educational movement dedicated to the idea that people are capable of far more than they know. Originally designed for young sailors during World War II, the program fostered leadership qualities the sailors needed to head out on the high seas—to be “Outward Bound.” Now, all around the world, Outward Bound schools prepare people to take on challenges and achieve more than they ever thought possible.
Our employees are the heart and soul of our organization. Whether you’re leading a group on a wilderness expedition, working with Philadelphia youth in their community, or creating a feeling of adventure in the classroom, your job is to help participants see the possibility in themselves and the world around them. Outward Bound employees inspire, serve, and lead. We believe we are in the business of helping to create a better world. Whether you work directly with students or behind the scenes in our home office in Fairmount Park, everything you do touches the student experience. Those passionate for exploration and education should apply.
Outward Bound is a wonderful place to work. The work is powerful and the challenges are real. Whether you are raising money or leading a team to climb a rock face, you will need to give it your best.
We excel at building communities — in the workplace, at our basecamps, and on our courses. Employees are dedicated and committed, but we still know how to have fun.
As an organization, we strive to offer the same excellence to our staff that we do to our students. Integrity and compassion are part of our values. We aim to create a supportive environment and serve our employees well. Collaboration, effective problem solving, and creativity are important components in our work life at Outward Bound. Outward Bound is an equal opportunity provider and employer.
