Join Us in Supporting Boston’s Youth


At Thompson Island Outward Bound, we believe every child can discover the freedom of possibility. Playing a crucial role in closing the achievement and opportunity gaps facing Boston's underserved middle schoolers, our multi-year programs move young people from the mindset of “I can’t” and “I’m not” to “I can” and "I will."

In 2019, 1,500+ students boarded the Thompson Island Outward Bound ferry to our 204-acre island classroom to discover all they are and all they can become through hands-on STEM, outdoor adventure, and Outward Bound’s unique approach to character development, compassion, and service.

Our free year-round programs Boston Public Schools students are only possible thanks to our supporters like you. Your tax-deductible contributions create opportunities for Boston’s next generation of leaders to thrive. Donate online now or learn more about corporate and planned giving and more.
