Outward Bound School wilderness courses provide great opportunities for veterans to learn new skills, challenge themselves and enjoy time working together with other vets. Reintegrating back into civilian life can be profoundly disorienting and challenging. Our participants report greater self-confidence, and experience healthier and more balanced lives after course. The expedition may only last a week, but the strength of the experience will be with you for a lifetime.The Hurricane Island Outward Bound School is able to offer these fully-funded programs for Veterans, thanks to the generous support of corporate and individual sponsors.
"Thank you so much for your role in making the Florida Keys sailing course possible for me. The course was a great way to help me connect with other veterans and overcome some of the daily struggles that creep up on you when you let your guard down. As a result of the course, I feel compelled to minimize distractions and focus on what is most important to me--my family. I encourage you to keep up the good work because there is no doubt in my mind that you are a positive force for change in peoples lives." - Andrew
