BENEFITING: COLORADO OUTWARD BOUND SCHOOL
Since 1962, the Colorado Outward Bound School has been working to change lives through challenge and discovery. Our wilderness courses range from 8 – 81 days and stretch our students' limits, teaching leadership, character, service, and technical skills along the way. We knew from day one that these courses need to be available to all young people, not just those who can afford it. We need your help to support our scholarship program, opening opportunities for more young people to attend a course this summer! The effort is simple, the impact great.
"Sometimes we settle for what we have because we don’t know what’s out there. These experiences give us a taste of what’s out there in the world: opportunity and perseverance." - Stacy Escobar, 2015 alum
