A chance to build a better future.

For 180 years Thompson Island has been a refuge for Boston’s most vulnerable young people, providing inspiration and education and a chance to change their lives. Today our Thompson Island Outward Bound Education Center programs continue this legacy of philanthropic leadership, empowering students to seek new goals, excel in school, learn to lead, and develop the compassion they need to make a difference in the world.

Your support directly serves our mission to bring Boston public school students to Thompson Island and close the achievement gap for those who are most at risk and most in need. Donate, volunteer, join our 4K Run, attend the Annual Gala, or become a member of our ISLE Society young professionals group and make the investment that will sustain our future.
