OB For ALL // SingaPORE SPOTLIGHT
A Rite of Passage for every youth in Singapore – As part of the National Outdoor Adventure Education Masterplan, the Ministry of Education – Outward Bound Singapore (OBS) Challenge Program seeks to develop ruggedness, resilience, and build cohesion amongst youths.
Outward Bound Singapore has partnered with the Singapore government to develop a nation-wide Outward Bound program for all youth; to prepare the next generation for the challenges of an increasingly uncertain and volatile world by developing critical life skills. Paramount to the program is the idea of bringing together adolescent boys and girls from all walks of life; regardless of race, language or religion, providing them with equal access to educational opportunities inside & outside the classroom. The OBS Challenge program is now national policy in Singapore. Within 3 years of the project roll-out, more than 30,000 youths have benefitted from the program with impressive results in terms of student learning and impact.
