Outward Bound Connect opportunities

An 8 day Outward Bound course designed for people working with youth. It will build the skills and confidence of those working with young people.

Anakiwa, Marlborough Sounds Events & workshopsOpportunities $1000

Outward Bound aims to help create better people, better communities, and a better world. People of all ages, cultures, abilities and backgrounds are welcome at Outward Bound.

Connect is an 8 day course specifically designed to provide development to those who work with youth throughout New Zealand. Outward Bound's goal is to create a forum for these people to share ideas, build networks across the sector and increase motivation towards positive results. It is also a great chance to show how outdoor activities can be used as a development tool with the youth they look after. For this reason, a cross section of backgrounds is encouraged on the course. Anyone from councillors to sports coaches are encouraged to apply.  

Outward Bound are proud to be able to offer a huge subsidy of the course fee again this year, thanks to our generous donors passionate about supporting this sector.
