The Outward Bound Trust is an educational charity that uses the outdoors to help develop young people from all walks of life.

Through the generosity of our donors, we are able to run adventurous and challenging outdoor learning programmes that equip young people with valuable skills for education, work and life. We help them become more confident, more effective and more capable at school, college and in the workplace.

We also deliver apprentice and graduate development programmes with companies like Volkswagen and BAE, as well as leadership and team development courses. All our programmes inspire and motivate people and take place in the natural environment, away from distractions or modern amenities.

Participants learn a deep appreciation of the balance between risk, reward and responsibility and leave our programmes with transferrable, essential life skills, including: 

These skills have been shown to have a profound impact on the future success of individuals in both education and employment, and on their overall wellbeing. We bring out the best in people, irrespective of their backgrounds, from school children through to senior managers. We teach them that they can achieve whatever they set out to do.
