Outward Bound Canada

Indigenous Youth & Adult Programs

Program Summary

Outward Bound Canada’s programs for Indigenous youth and young adults combine the philosophy of Outward Bound with the values and teachings reflected in Canadian Indigenous cultures and communities. For more than 25 years, Outward Bound Canada has worked with various Indigenous communities and organizations to help develop inspiring and valuable programs. Outward Bound’s programs for Indigenous youth and adults are guided by the following principles:

  • Community-driven: direction and goals are established by our community partners.
  • Culturally-grounded: built on the particular cultural strengths, traditions and values of the communities we serve.
  • Capacity-building: create lasting value and build capacity for our community partners.
  • Deep collaboration: we aspire to build authentic partnerships that support the long-term development goals of Indigenous communities.

Eligible Recipients
