As we celebrate the fiftieth anniversary of this extraordinary institution and prepare for the next 50 years of transformative educational experiences, we mark this moment by investing in the enduring impact of the North Carolina Outward Bound School.
The goal of Enduring Impact: Our Legacy and our Future Campaign is to serve more students than ever before with high-quality programs that change lives. One individual at a time, NCOBS will forge stronger communities, improve the culture of schools, ignite the passion of teachers, empower veterans’ transitions to civilian life, and inspire a new generation of leaders.
NOW MORE THAN EVER
Today’s political, social, economic and environmental challenges are more significant and complex than even our founders could have imagined when they first established North Carolina Outward Bound School 50 years ago. The importance of supporting young people to discover their compassion and inner strength, to experience themselves as leaders, and to develop their capacity for collaborative problem solving has never been greater than it is right now. And the need what NCOBS contributes to the world—and for the qualities of citizenship we inspire in our students—remains urgent.
We have a bold vision to establish North Carolina Outward Bound School as the worldwide leader in wilderness-based experiential education, positioning us to empower the next generation of compassionate leaders this world so desperately needs. The collective investment in our staff, students and facilities that the Enduring Impact campaign is a big part of how we get there.
We can achieve this vision if we join together, TO SERVE, TO STRIVE AND NOT TO YIELD.
