Introducing the "Archives" Series

A celebration of the past 30 years would be incomplete without a look back at how we got here. This month, we start at the beginning with features on our founding and on our very first expedition.

From The Archives: Our Founding - the story of how POBS began as the Philadelphia Friends of Outward Bound.

From the Archives: Our First Expedition - how the Philadelphia Friends of Outward Bound planned our first expedition in 1993 (pictured at left).

Stick Around For Growth: The Jennifer Raymond Story
