About the organization

For over thirty years, NYC Outward Bound Schools has provided transformative educational experiences in communities that have been historically marginalized.

Our uniquely powerful program combines the Outward Bound approach with principles of EL (Expeditionary Learning), joining together demanding, engaging learning with an emphasis on community and character.
