Young people's wellbeing and resilience in uncertainty
Resilience in an uncertain world

Outward Bound is here to support young people in times of uncertainty.

Being young has never been easy.

And at this time, young people may feel even more anxious about the world they live in - and their future - than ever before.

Founded during the Second World War, Outward Bound has been here to help young people face challenge and manage uncertainty in their lives for almost 80 years.

This is now needed more than ever before.

We'll continue to help young people at this uncertain time - right now, over the next few months and into the future.

We're here to support their emotional and mental wellbeing, as well as help them to develop the skills and traits they need to face and take on an ever-changing world.

Resourcefulness.

To never give up.

Resilience.

Self-confidence.

Compassion.

These are all key to coping with change and stressful situations.

Inspiration from young people

As we're being asked to socially isolate, relationships and connecting with others is as important as ever. And so is staying positive and keeping what matters in perspective.

To support you, your friends, your family and your colleagues through this difficult period, we're turning to the experiences of young people who have been to Outward Bound for inspiration.

These are their experiences in their own words.
