New Leaders

  • 98% of students in the NYC Outward Bound Schools network were accepted to college in 2016.
  • 89% of our high school students graduate within 4 years.
  • 67% of our students are eligible for free/reduced lunch.

New Leaders is the junior board of NYC Outward Bound Schools, and is comprised of young professionals ages 21-40. New Leaders is committed to raising awareness of the organization’s efforts to improve the quality of public education that underserved students receive in New York City. The group is active through volunteer opportunities at NYC Outward Bound Schools, committee participation, social media engagement and fundraising. The benefits of participating in the New Leaders include the chance to volunteer on specific projects at public schools that NYC Outward Bound Schools operates in partnership with the Department of Education, the access to a network of other young professionals interested in NYC public education, the opportunity to work with senior board and advisory council members, and the ability to give back to the City’s underserved youth by supporting the work of NYC Outward Bound Schools.
