In the fall of 2021, Outward Bound USA hosted a virtual event that gathered alumni, donors, staff, friends and distinguished guests, all as Crew. Our alumni emcees, Mayra Chavez and Mel Gonzalez, and our event host, Ben Farrell, led us and over 300 of our closest friends, on a virtual journey to rediscover the Outward Bound experience, and celebrate the many ways that Outward Bound “Inspires Bold Futures!”
Together, we raised over $200,000 for Outward Bound USA's work to support the 11 regional Outward Bound Schools across the country. Thank you to our Corporate Crew and Compass Rose Circle and to the 2021 Outward Bound USA Board of Directors for making this event possible. Special recognition for our inspiring and esteemed speakers, U.S. Secretary of Education, Miguel Cardona, Congressman and Outward Bound Alumnus, Don Beyer, and New York Times Best Selling Author, Suleika Jaouad, who shared their personal stories and insights into the importance of changing lives through challenge and discovery!
