About Us

Outward Bound Singapore (OBS), a division of the National Youth Council (NYC), is part of a worldwide adventure-based learning network in more than 30 countries.

We are recognised as a leader in outdoor education in the region and have impacted more than 500,000 youths over the past 50 years.

Our instructors are qualified professionals with an affinity for the outdoors and passion for developing people. As a national institution, our mission is to develop mentally and physically rugged youths to be active citizens inspired to serve the community.

To Serve, To Strive and Not To Yield

This is the OBS spirit we aim to inculcate in youths. We do not merely impart outdoor skills and knowledge, but also inspire youths to start a journey of self-discovery and build confidence, determination and resilience that can last for a lifetime.

Our full-time instructors are carefully handpicked for their positive mindsets, affinity for the outdoors and passion for youth development. As we continue to grow, we seek like-minded people to be part of the OBS team. Find out how you can become an OBS instructor today.
