When you join Outward Bound California for the City Skyline Challenge, you will have a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity - the chance to rappel free-hanging from a 23 story building in the heart of downtown San Francisco.
Plus, you'll help us raise $250,000 to dramatically increase the number of low-income students we serve throughout California. Because every young person deserves the chance to challenge themselves and change their life. Outward Bound California is proud to partner with Over the Edge to ensure participants not only have fun but do it safely!
Come join us for cocktail hour on February 6th and learn more!
We’ll share with you why we’re doing the City Skyline Challenge, what it will be like to rappel, and how you can reach your fundraising goal in no time at all! All you have to do is raise (or give) $1,500 or more and you'll be on your way to the adventure of a lifetime! Outward Bound staff and volunteers will help you each step of the way.
For more information on participating by rappelling or via sponsorship, please contact Vanessa Baker: firstname.lastname@example.org or at 828-239-2382.
When & Where
Outward Bound California
Outward Bound is the leading provider of experiential education programs for youth and adults. With a national network of schools and hundreds of courses in wilderness settings and urban environments, Outward Bound has helped people discover strength of character, an ability to lead and a desire to serve for over 50 years.
Outward Bound California is a regional Outward Bound School that was founded in 2008. We offer experiential learning programs that challenge students to develop the skills and inner strengths they need to succeed in their schools, communities and careers.
Through our Bay Area Center, located in San Francisco’s Presidio, our instructors lead year-round programs in public schools and in partnership with other youth serving nonprofits. In 2011-2012, the Bay Area center engaged nearly 1,000 students, largely through the generosity of our donors.
Through our High Sierra base camp, young people embark on multi-week wilderness courses in the summer that challenge them to dig deep and discover hidden strengths. Youth navigate rugged landscapes and scale peaks far away from urban life. In 2012, 250 students ventured out on these expeditions, 1 in 3 of whom received a partial or full scholarship.
Outward Bound California is a 501(c)3 non-profit educational organization with Tax ID number 26-4206241. Our mission is To Change Lives Through Challenge and Discovery.
