Get Out And Lead (GOAL)

<< Back to Course Finder

Go into the remote backcountry. Travel as a crew on the Appalachian Trail, living only on what you carry with you. Build memories you’ll never forget.


Get Out And Lead (GOAL) is an Outward Bound scholarship program that has been developed to cultivate budding leaders through the unique challenge of an 8-day wilderness expedition backing and rock climbing along the Appalachian Trail. Students learn the skills that are critical to success and often not learned in the classroom- leadership styles, communication, collaboration, critical thinking, and decision making. The ideal GOAL applicant is a 12-14 year old who already shows natural leadership abilities.
