Qualities such as self-discipline, planning and goal-setting are necessary for the completion of any task, and it is particularly important that young people are able to develop these so that they can take greater responsibility for their learning.
Qualities such as resilience, determination and perseverance are fundamental to whether we succeed or fail – in school, at work, in our relationships or in maintaining a healthy lifestyle.
Our belief in our ability to achieve what we set out to do strongly affects whether we achieve our goals or not.
Our approach – what it means to be Outward Bound.
Through Outward Bound Trust’s Employee Ambassador scheme, they offer opportunities for employees from their funders’ organisations to support young people during an Outward Bound course. This enables them to be directly involved in the young people’s learning, and to see first-hand the impact of the funding their employer has provided.
