Invest in youth, invest in the future

Make a difference in the lives of young people. Partner with Outward Bound Canada (OBC) to provide youth underserved with outdoor education with the social-emotional skills they need to succeed in a changing world. Our challenging outdoor experiences change lives, build resilience, self-confidence and environmental awareness.

As a registered charity, we rely on the generous support of corporate partners and foundations to deliver these impactful programs. Your support helps to overcome financial barriers and increase program diversity so that all young people, regardless of their background, can reach their potential and become future leaders.
