I volunteered at the 8-day Outward Bound course. My motivation for participating was multiple. I was intrigued by the opportunity, of type of experiential learning that is still unknown to me, which will allow me to further expand my professional growth, and at the same time provide a visible feedback. The results exceeded my expectations. I’m positive that this type of experience would be useful to anyone working as a pedagogical worker for the purpose of professional development as well as personal growth regardless of their affinity when it comes to the way of spending leisure time.
Although I have ten years of experience in education, I have not experienced such a rapid and effective learning effect (in a very short period of time), and enviable success in creating group cohesion by providing great responsibility to each individual.
Upon completion of the course, these young people have become more mature than they were at the beginning. I think that the program should be implemented in every high school and institution engaged in education of children and young people due to the fact that the course provides them with extraordinary experience, enables development of self-esteem, fosters cooperation and mutual respect, all that without any preconditions and expectations of the participants except their own motivation.

I liked to observe how our students are changing while being in new situations, how they help and support each other. I would like to see this approach implemented in regular school curriculum.Professor, Architectural Technical School Zagreb
Students are generally totally delighted, first of all with meeting new people with whom they became friends, so that immediately upon returning they formed a facebook group, and now regularly communicate.Professor
I would recommend the program precisely because of the number of skills we gained here, such as responsibility, self-awareness and teamwork, that we do not develop in our everyday life. What I liked the most was realising the importance of teamwork, and what are my abilities and fears. I learned in practice the meaning of the verb 'empower'The participant of the 8-day program
I would recommend this course to everyone, because it's such an aberration from everyday life that you have to get out of this experience as a changed person if you embrace all the challenges given. I would definitely describe myself now, after the training, as more in tuned with myself and who I actually am.The participant of the 8-day program
Climbing was the best part for me becausue I find it cool how you have to believe in others and in yourself. What I liked least was the fact that we did not stay long enough to see and try more things. I learned that we should help each other and have confidence in people around us.The participant of the 8-day program
