To Strive. To Serve. And Not to Yield
- NWOBS Annual Report

This year marks our 52nd year serving students from across the country in our great Pacific Northwest. Founded in 1965 by Don Vetterlein, with Bill Byrd serving as the first School Director, we have, through our courses, changed countless lives through challenge and discovery. As we honor and celebrate our legacy of over 50 years, we have heard from numerous past staff, alumni, and supporters of Outward Bound the profound impact Outward Bound has had on their lives. We are grateful for your continuing support and for an opportunity to continue to serve our mission and honor all those who sacrificed to create Northwest Outward Bound School.
