We’re here to support our community this year.

NYC Outward Bound Schools has developed and curated a series of resources that can help teachers (across multiple content areas and grades), staff and parents to:

  • Facilitate virtual learning and discussion
  • Keep students connected and engaged despite distance
  • Capture data about student learning
  • Process and address grief
  • Prioritize the social-emotional needs of students

Remote Service Learning Resources

At NYC Outward Bound Schools, we connect service learning to the ethos of kindness that is part of the school culture. We design and plan service learning experiences that go beyond charitable volunteer work to include projects that build important academic skills. These experiences help students to see that academic work can be in the service of good for others. Though these projects are remote for the time being, we continue to research service opportunities to ensure that service learning projects provide a real benefit to the community. These resources align with EL Education Core Practice #7: Incorporating Fieldwork, Experts and Service Learning.
