Emily Bridger has completed a one-year internship with Himalayan Outward Bound in India (OBI) as part of her Outdoor Leadership degree.
OBI is a non-profit, independent educational organisation with approximately 40 schools world-wide, educating 200,000 participants per year.
Himalayan Outward Bound adventure programmes aim to foster the personal growth and social skills of participants by using challenging expeditions in the outdoors. Outward Bound runs on the belief that character development is just as important as academic achievement.
Participants put in challenging adventure situations gain confidence, redefine their perceptions and demonstrate compassion. Emily has kindly provided UCLan Outdoors with a presentation poster and photoset detailing her time in India.
