Through close partnerships with schools and youth-serving agencies, Omaha Outward Bound School programs teach underserved students valuable life skills that are often left unaddressed in the typical classroom setting. Outward Bound programming has greater impact on students lives through regular, progressive activities over time.
Omaha Outward Bound School is housed at the NorthStar facility and delivers 9-week leadership development curriculum to grade-specific cohorts throughout the school year. During the summer, Outward Bound delivers multi-day programming and expeditions for youth enrolled in Camp NorthStar.
Omaha Outward Bound School delivers an experiential leadership development program to a cohort of upperclassman to prepare them for life after high school, and a 4-year leadership program for freshman to enhance their high school experience through graduation.
The school is part of the neighborhood revitalization project, 75 North, that aims to breathe new life into the north Omaha Highlander neighborhood.
Prior to re-opening in August 2016, Omaha Outward Bound School delivered two days of teambuilding for the entirely new school staff.
For the summer of 2017, we will partner with Kennedy to deliver a daily experiential and project-based learning program for 90 of their summer school students.
