You can use your AmeriCorps Education Award to pay for your Colorado Outward Bound School course. Whether you are looking for a seven-day wilderness adventure to celebrate your accomplishment or a semester-long program, we have the right course for you. Longer courses, like our instructor or semester courses, are an excellent way to gain the skills you need to become a leader and thrive in the wilderness.
