The Confederated Tribes of Warm Springs and Northwest Outward Bound School partnership was established to build culturally relevant programs in Central Oregon for youth of the Warm Springs, Wasco, and Paiute tribes. All participating tribal youth receive fully-funded scholarships, beginning with rafting courses on the Deschutes River, backpacking courses on tribal lands, and expanding to other programs of interest. In collaboration with leaders in the tribal community, this program creates tribal specific courses, incorporating significant aspects of the Warm Springs culture and history with Northwest Outward Bound School outdoor education and leadership skill development. The goal is to inspire youth to connect with tribal lands, ignite their interest in the outdoors, and create pathways to outdoor education, advocacy, and industry.
