To effect positive and lasting change in the lives of New York Citys young people and their public schools.

NYC Outward Bound Schools Network We operate a citywide network of public schools that fully embody our educational approach. Our network is mainly comprised of district schools but also includes one public charter school. All of our schools are unscreened, which means that there are no tests or other special requirements for admission. We support our Network schools by providing: coaching and professional development for teachers and school leaders in the implementation of EL Education, a whole school model with its roots in Outward Bound, character and leadership development programming for students, and To & Through College programming aimed at supporting our students most of whom will be the first in their families to attend college -- in applying to, enrolling in, and completing college. (Continued on Schedule O).

Adventure and Team Building Programs Some of the most important lessons are learned outside of the classroom. Drawing upon Outward Bounds nearly 80 years of preeminence in experiential education, NYC Outward Bound Schools offers a range of Adventure & Team Building programs for students and educators. We offer these programs on a fee-for-service basis to New York City public schools, private schools, universities and other youth-serving organizations. Each program is organized around one or more of the following themes: Leadership/character development; service; and academic enrichment. They can be school and/or field-based and can be targeted to youth and/or adults. They vary in length from one day to a year, and take place during the school day, after-school, on weekends and/or in the summer. (Continued on Schedule O).

Select Strategies for Schools In addition to operating our network of schools, we also bring the most effective and replicable school-wide structures and classroom practices from our Network Schools to other public schools throughout New York City. These Select Strategies are specially designed to strengthen schools capacity to build positive culture and/or deliver demanding and engaging academics. We help each partner school adapt and implement one or more of these Select Strategies to address an articulated area of school need. (Continued on Schedule O).
