Thank you for considering a gift to Voyageur Outward Bound School!
VOBS courses change people’s lives forever.
People like Nancy, who was sent to VOBS by her dad as a teen, and who forty years later still uses the strength she gained and the lessons she learned to overcome life’s obstacles--even the death of a loved one.
People like Taylar, who at 17, learned that anything is possible when you put self-doubt out of your mind.
People like Lydia, a Marine veteran who was frustrated in her efforts to readjust to a civilian world after serving in Afghanistan and Africa, but who decided on a new way to live her life after an eight-day dogsledding course.
"There is more to us than we know.
If we can be made to see it, perhaps for the rest of our lives we will be unwilling to settle for less."
-Outward Bound Founder, Kurt Hahn
For 50 years VOBS has taught tens of thousands of students that there is more to them than they know--that they are capable of so much more than they know.
WE CANNOT CONTINUE TO DO IT, HOWEVER, WITHOUT YOUR SUPPORT!
Program fees cover some, but far from all, of the cost of an expedition! We rely upon a cherished community of donors to make the transformational power of our courses available to all students. VOBS enjoys a fifty-year legacy of making scholarships available so that all students, regardless of their ability to pay, can take a course. We need your help to continue!
Please consider a gift to Voyageur Outward Bound School this holiday season. With your help, we can secure the future for the next fifty years!
