Outward Bound Adventures (OBA, Inc.)
Outward Bound Adventures (not to be confused with Outward Bound, the national organization) is a nonprofit organization based in Southern California that since 1961 has been dedicated to providing nature-based education that promotes positive self development, environmental responsibility and outdoor career exposure. Our target population is urban youth, many of whom come from families that are economically distressed; students experiencing academic difficulties and young people who are engaging in delinquent behaviors such as truancy, involvement in gangs and/or other criminal activities.
These activities are carried out through the OBA Get Out and Learn Program (GOAL), Teach Me To Camp (TMTC), the Youth Advisory Council (YAC) and customized environmental learning adventures and leadership development activities for community organizations and agencies. On these trips OBA visits pristine wilderness locations throughout California, western United States and abroad. These programs are led by a team of skilled, qualified volunteers.
