What Our Students Learn On Expedition

Challenge changes us. It can upend our preconceptions and stir up our insecurities, but if we rise to it, it can strengthen us beyond measure.

Outward Bound alumni know this at their core. When reflecting on their expeditions this past summer, here’s what our students had to say about the challenges they experienced on course –

Philadelphia Outward Bound School (POBS) is a leader in teaching students to meet challenges head on. In overcoming the obstacles they encounter on an Outward Bound program, they find new perspectives, build character, boost their confidence, and are inspired to lead with compassion.

No one at POBS is turned away for lack of funds, and in order to cover 80% of costs for the public & charter schools we serve, we need YOU on our crew.

POBS has been challenged with a generous matching grant from The Lily Foundation -- all new and increased gifts we receive before 12/31 will be MATCHED, dollar for dollar, up to $25,000.

Your year-end contribution will help POBS to unlock these funds, and to ensure that students across our region have the opportunity to grow through challenge.

There has never been a better time to give!
