(From the May 8th, 2021 Program, Segment 2)
Many times when you hear a certain name you think of a specific activity. For many, when you hear Outward Bound you immediately think of hiking, backpacking, climbing & camping. However this famed experiential educational school has a deeper purpose.
Our guest, Alexys J. Taylor comes onto the program to talk about self-improvement, team dynamics, leadership & social responsibilities that also are worked on within the largest & one of the most successful Outward Bound schools, NCOBS.

She has a unique perspective after acting as a member of the Charlotte Advisory Board, Program Committee Chair & a graduate of the Unity Project as a student at Vance High School in 2008.
