Gabriel Schafer Suárez
Associate Program Director of Safety & Course Quality
Gabriel Schafer Suárez is excited to be joining the Colorado Outward Bound team this year! Gabriel’s responsibilities include coordinating program curriculum and safety, and ensuring high-quality course delivery and operations for family, students, and staff.
Previous to his work at COBS, Gabriel was a public educator in Texas and he has his BA in Education from the University of Oklahoma. The Outward Bound educational framework resonated with Gabriel and he is stoked to continue to foster meaningful relationships with his team and their students. Gabriel strives to create a space where everyone is comfortable being vulnerable and can challenge themselves safely.
Gabriel grew up backpacking and later fell in love with climbing in the Wichita Mountains during college. He is stoked to be in a place where his love of the outdoors meets his passion for education.
Gabriel invites ALL to come learn and grow with him and looks forward to the adventure ahead!
