In 2011, Northwest Outward Bound School established the Outward Bound Portland Center in east Multnomah County to bring our mission closer to low income and urban youth. Through intentional partnerships, the Outward Bound Portland Center makes an Outward Bound experience accessible to populations that are often underrepresented on our traditional wilderness expeditions.
In the Schools
The Outward Bound Portland Center supports school initiatives and outcomes, as well as, students’ academic performance by providing educational enrichment, reconnecting disengaged learners, and increasing attendance, thereby improving the likelihood of graduation.
In the Community
Alongside government agencies and community-based organizations, the Outward Bound Portland Center performs meaningful service projects in the community and natural environment.
A big thank you to our partners and supporters!
