The Dewey Schools has integrated the Life-skills & Extracurricular Education Program of Outward Bound Vietnam, bringing students a value-creating and interesting experience. Outward Bound Vietnam is a member of the Outward Bound network operating in 37 countries and serving more than 200,000 participants each year.
The challenges in Outward Bound programs are designed for a small group of 14 participants, promoting their teamwork and communication skills. At the same time, students have time to reflect on themselves to draw lessons, plan their future actions, and understand their strengths and weaknesses.
Students will be equipped with outdoor skills and understand the importance of environmental conservation through active engagement in the wilderness, hiking and setting up a shelter, etc. Besides, students are also introduced to “Leave No Trace” principles to minimize the impacts on wildlife during the experience.
