2018 and 2019 Grantee
Outward Bound California’s mission is to change lives through challenge and discovery. Their vision is to foster a more resilient and compassionate world through outdoor exploration.
How the program contributes to peace and social consciousness:
Outward Bound California provides hands-on opportunities for youth from very different backgrounds to practice problem-solving, conflict resolution, compassionate leadership, and service. Their Youth Leadership Corp program supports our focus on Mindful Education specifically for its ability to instill compassionate leadership in teens using participatory approaches to community building.
How we collaborated
Vanessa Baker, Development Director at Outward Bound California co-facilitated our peaceful world conversation lunch event on the theme of Traditions, Transitions and Teen Spirit with our 2018 and 2019 grantee, Friends of the Urban Forest.
In 2019 Adriana Guerrero, Annual Fund Manager and Fund Development Coordinator, Jinny Jung from Outward Bound participated and attended several peaceful world conversations including our lunch event Celebrating Diversity and Advocacy where the question on ethical funding was discussed.
They both also attended our 2019 Peace Festival where they elaborated on their organizational mission.
