Outward Bound helps youth coaches grow
How can I get young people back in contact with themselves? How do I inspire them to change their behaviour without pointing the finger? How can I create a climate in which young people feel safe and appreciated? Outward Bound is a reliable training centre for youth coaches and uses methods geared to experience-based learning.
>> Outward Bound is specialized in training and coaching for youth coaches and educators in the social sector and in special youth care.
Outward Bound helps youth coaches get in touch with their emotional side
The ultimate aim of Outward Bound is to bring the quality of assistance programmes for special youth care to a higher level. We give fellow care workers a taste of an extensive range of outdoor activities specifically for young people geared to self-insight, motivation, communication and personal growth. Experienced coaches stimulate diversity and work in a culture-sensitive way.
Outward Bound devises a programme in which we:
Get young people moving: hiking, rock climbing, ropes course, etc.
Discover personal qualities, pitfalls, triggers and challenges
Create a safe and open context for young people
Support and activate group processes and teamwork
Strengthen conversational skills and communication
Respect and delineate boundaries and structures
Provide a manual on the quest for self-insight
Stimulate self-reflection among young people
>> Outward Bound motivates, stimulates and maximizes. We invest in hands-on assignments, dialogue and reflection so that all participants come out of the process stronger.
In practical terms:
What is the added value of Outward Bound? Coaches infiltrate the mindset of young people and experience first-hand the positive dynamic and disarming and pure power of activities in nature. A group of motivated coaches can share their experiences and learn from each other thanks to peer-to-peer and supervised coaching. We offer concrete levers, theoretical stepping stones and instructional exercises.
