Participant Stories

Thanks to the support of our Friends, 21 underprivileged young people from nine schools across Scotland were sponsored to take part in the life-changing experience that is the Outward Bound Skills for Life Award Course.

They are Scotland's Next Generation, they'd like to share their experiences and most importantly say thank you!

Dear sponsor,

"You have given me an opportunity in my life to try something new. I hope your support at Outward Bound will continue and that many more people will receive the same opportunity as I have. Thank you so much."
"While out on the last expedition I received my 5th year exam results and they weren't what I hoped they would be. Thanks to some fantastic people I managed to keep myself together and make important decisions about my life."
