I first encountered Outward Bound at the age of twenty-one when I graduated college and was looking for meaning in my life. I went on a Outward Bound course and found my passion, the mission of Outward Bound “To inspire character development and self-discovery in people of all ages and walks of life through challenge and adventure, and to impel them to achieve more than they ever thought possible, to show compassion for others and to actively engage in creating a better world.” Now after working for Outward Bound Mazama Washington the past nine years, I have seen how Outward Bound has impacted students, staff, and myself. How people from such diverse backgrounds that would not acknowledge each other on the streets, find respect and compassion for each other in the wilderness, how staff have grown from challenges overcome, and how I have matured through self discovery to be a active citizen that tries to better my community through service to others. Outward Bound Mazama Washington impacts our world in a promoising, unmistakable way... by impeling people to stand up and be confident, compassionate, truthful, and trustworthy individuals who affect our communities and therefore our society! I ask you all to now support Outward Bound Mazama Washington, you are now needed to keep this organization alive!!!
