Help support 120 youth to become the hero’s of their own story

Help support 120 youth to become the hero’s of their own story

Personal message

Outward Bound South Africa is a non-profit organisation that facilitates adventure-based learning interventions in the outdoors.

Our programmes offer underserved youth high impact activities, which are metaphors for life’s challenges, transforming these experiences into tools to teach them much needed life skills.

Breaking with the traditional classroom-based training, we use adventure-based challenges to evoke insights and self-discovery through experiential learning.


We want to equip young people with a stronger sense of self-belief, cope better with stressful situations and interact more positively with others.

Now more than ever, we need to keep supporting young people with experiences that will help develop the skills and behaviours they need to make positive changes in their lives.
