Outward Bound...Into the Mainstream of Education.
Outward Bound, Inc., Andover, MA.
Outward Bound schools have instituted advanced courses designed specifically for adults engaged in education and youth work. Benefits for teachers include greater development of capacitites and potentialities, greater confidence in their abilities, and the ability to relate more effectively to others. Some of the specific training elements in an Outward Bound program are a close confrontation of man with nature, physical fitness, competition, solitude as an opportunity for introspection and reassessment, activities demanding self-discipline and attention to detail, and problem-solving and decision-making. Goals of the program are to instill values that affect attitudes and influence behavior. Pictures contained in this document have been deleted due to marginal reproducibility. (JH)
