NYC Outward Bound Schools builds and supports individualized, long-term corporate partnerships with companies committed to high student achievement in our City’s public schools. Corporate partners have the opportunity to sponsor specific initiatives, events, or provide in-kind support. Additionally, we provide customized employee engagement opportunities that connect corporate employees with volunteer projects at our schools.
