Team OBA - Outward Bound Adventures
"The Outdoors is our Classroom"
We are running for our youth! The urban youth that need our programs, that is!

Join TEAM OBA's fundraising effort as we train and run a Half-Marathon with the youth in our programs in the 2010 Long Beach Marathon & Half-Marathon on October 17th!

At Outward Bound Adventures we know that the most important lessons - like purpose, compassion and stewardship - are not always learned in the classroom. That's why we use the great outdoors to teach urban youth something about themselves - show them their untapped potential, while at the same time, they learn a little something about the environment - like eco-literacy and environmental stewardship. Through challenging outdoor learning experiences, our programs promote positive self-development, while teaching environmental responsibility.

Since 1963, we've helped over 40,000 urban youth discover their potential and gain personal confidence through challenging outdoor trips in environments most of them have never been exposed to in their lifetimes. And we don't just help youth to become literate, we help them to become eco-literate. Now that's a winning combination for all of our futures!

Thousands of urban youth are waiting for the opportunity to take their own Outward Bound Adventures Trip. We need your help!
