WHY I GIVE TO OBC: JOY

Joy is an alumna of our Women of Courage and Veterans' programs. Since completing her first course, Joy has given generously to Outward Bound Canada on Giving Tuesday and through other gifts throughout the year. Here's why Joy is paying it forward:

"I hope to keep contributing whatever I can – everyone deserves the chance to recover from difficult experiences in the healing beauty of the outdoors."


BOUNDERS’ LOG: MADDIE BUSS

Two time Outward Bound Canada alumna, Maddie, shares her experience on our Northern Ontario Dogsledding Journey and our West Coast Expedition:

"My first Outward Bound trip was an adventure that had a lasting impact on me, so much so that only eight months later, I signed up for my second course. This time, I wanted to push myself to my limit, because I knew that was where I would learn the most."



UNDERSTANDING THE WOMEN OF COURAGE PROGRAM

Outward Bound Canada’s Women of Courage Program offers inspiring journeys of adventure, challenge and healing in the Canadian wilderness for women who have experienced violence and/or abuse. We spoke with our Women of Courage coordinator and instructor, Lara Hollway, to learn more about her first-hand experience with the Women of Courage program.
