Outward Bound California's City Skyline Challenge is a community-wide, peer-to-peer fundraising event that raises over $300k in scholarship funds for underrepresented students to experience Outward Bound California's transformational outdoor leadership and character development programs, which we run across California (Yosemite, Bay Area, Joshua Tree). This event is unique because it features individuals rappelling off the roof of the Hilton in downtown SF, and through rappelling an urban skyscraper (many for the first time!), they experience what Outward Bound students discover every day on course: that they are made of more than they ever thought possible.

Jobs include but are not limited to:

  • Signing people in at a registration table
  • Coat check
  • Photography (previous experience required)
  • Rope and belay volunteers (some previous experience required)
  • Guiding / directing participants within the hotel
  • General runners

Event Activity: This event is extremely fun and very energetic. We ask that volunteers wear comfortable shoes. The event is held indoors and outdoors, so make sure to wear sunscreen and bring layers.

Costumes welcomed if you and your friends want to extend the Halloween holiday! General times will be from 7:30 am-6 pm. Specific shift times will be assigned closer to the event day.

Perks include snacks/food/drinks, goody bags, training for specific tasks on the morning of each event day, and being a part of a special event with local celebs and media outlets. 

Sign up here to volunteer. If you have more questions, contact cityskyline@outwardboundcalifornia.org with "CSC19 Volunteer Inquiry" in the subject line. Thank you!
