2022 60th anniversary celebration

Outward Bound USA was humbled and exhilarated by the outpouring of support for our mission at our 60th Anniversary Celebration. Student, Alum, and Assistant Instructor Mel Gonzalez, Instructor Shelby Fredrickson, and Alum and TIOBEC Board Member Eddie Jenkins shared their inspiring experiences with Outward Bound as students, instructors and community partners. If you joined us for this historic event, thank you for “being in the room where it happened!"  Through the generosity of our supporters, we raised over $750,000!
