Young people today are faced with a complex world. The fast pace of life, modern ways of learning and an ever growing number of distractions often leads to a lack of self confidence and a decline in creativity, initiative and the ability to make the right choices. This can be overwhelming and isolating. To be effective at school, work and life demands important academic skills, strength of character and the personal and social competence to deal with complex problems.
Outward Bound teaches young people essential life skills. In line with research done by the World Economic Forum, we focus on developing the Competencies and Character Qualities required to succeed in the 21st Century. These are:
- Critical Thinking/Problem Solving
- Social/Cultural Awareness
In addition to these skills, Outward Bound promotes healthy lifestyle choices and self- discipline amongst young people. Above all, our expeditions foster compassion and care for self, others and the environment.
