Outward Bound Atlanta works with schools, non-profits, community organizations and corporations in the Metro Atlanta area and can design programs to fit a number of needs.
Team: Team courses are character development initiatives that teach participants to communicate more effectively, accept others and make positive choices. Team usually takes about three hours to complete and can be held in many different locations.
Traverse: Traverse offers an opportunity to complete a low ropes challenge day on the Odyssey Ropes Course at the New Schools at Carver. This program challenges participants to work collaboratively, practicing skills like effective communication, critical thinking and problem-solving. Traverse courses take about four hours to complete.
Odyssey: Odyssey programs offer a high ropes course challenge, giving participants the chance to take their leadership skills to new heights. Participants engage in a series of trust-building activities that strengthen their ability to work collectively while supporting each other through the Odyssey High Ropes Course at Carver. Through this program, individuals also discover the benefits of healthy risk-taking, which is an essential skill for success. This course takes about five hours to complete.
Leadership Club: The Outward Bound Leadership Club is a year-long service-learning program that enhances participants' experience through the development of community service projects and conversation around the Outward Bound principles. These meetings usually happen bi-weekly and can be designed to fit a number of client’s needs.
Wilderness: Wilderness expeditions, run through the parent organization, NCOBS, will send you outdoors on an expedition to find your inner strength.
