Applications are open for Outward Bound scholarships


YWCA and Outward Bound offer an amazing opportunity for young women to attend a life-changing 21-day course at a greatly reduced cost.

The YWCA's purpose is to support individual and community change by empowering women, especially young women, to develop and exercise their individual and collective leadership through enhancing their spiritual, physical, mental, and cultural wellbeing. Our partnership with Outward Bound is one great way of achieving this.

The experiences of those who attend are always inspiring and the results are invariably life-changing.

“I want to be a leader and make change in the public health system... Outward Bound has given me valuable leadership and teamwork skills to achieve this dream, and reminded me of compassion, giving and serving.”

“By the end of the 21 days, we had become a tight knit family, and my life had changed for the better. Outward Bound pushed me mentally, physically and emotionally out of my comfort zone on a daily basis. From the bottom of my heart – thank you for giving me this amazing opportunity.”

We are currently accepting applications for a scholarship to support young women who are aged between 18 and 26 years old to attend this fabulous course. Applications close Monday, 12 August 2019.
