Serving the Greater Los Angeles area, OBA, Inc., doing business as Outward Bound Adventures, is a nonprofit organization that for over 50 years has provided relevant, meaningful nature-based educational experiences for urban under-served youth, young adults and their families.
OBA uses the wilderness, urban communities and classroom settings to teach its middle school and high school participants about the natural world. We engage them in long-term initiatives and activities that promote self-mastery, accountability, community service and environmental education. On average, OBA serves approximately 1,100 participants annually.
The youth OBA will serve are all people with high potential for dramatic growth. Please help us transform lives and create a new generation of environmental stewards that better reflects the American demographic. Donate now.
