What does it take to be an Outward Bound Instructor? 

According to Backpacker Magazine, Outward Bound Instructors must possess “a blend of technical know-how and sophisticated people skills.” And their fitness must be “above and beyond [their] students. [They] can be tired at the end of the day, but [they] can never be at the edge of [their] own limits… after all, they’re the guide, the teacher, the mediator, the chef, and sometimes the doctor.”

Prospective Outward Bound instructors often enroll in Instructor Development courses as an important next step on their career track.

"Outward Bound famously takes students from all walks of life, and over the course of the two trips, I watched as the instructors skillfully formed the kids into thoughtful, competent teams who were well able to meet the challenges of the trail."
