Alum of the 2014 Fourteen-Day New Jersey Youth Leadership Corps Expedition

Before Outward Bound, I had little to no self-confidence. I was shy.  I had dreams like everyone else, but no knowledge about how to reach those dreams.

During my experience at Outward Bound, I learned so much—not only about the amazing world around me, but about myself as well. I have the confidence to be a strong leader. I believe in myself enough to take charge and point my team in the right direction.

On my journey, I gained knowledge, strength, confidence and amazing memories with my new family. Spending two weeks with thirteen strangers can be a scary thing to anyone. But after experiencing the moments I shared with these special people, I know I would do it again in a heartbeat.

Being accepted into the New Jersey Youth Leadership Corps helped me to start and complete the first step towards achieving my dreams.

I want to personally thank you for your involvement, whether you’ve made a donation, participated, volunteered or spread the word.

Thanks to you, so many lives are being changed, dreams are started, and families are made. Outward Bound changed my life.  It’s because of people like YOU that I experienced this.

I hope you’ll consider continuing to support the New Jersey Youth Leadership Corps program.  I know I can’t wait to pay this gift forward.
