The PEAR Institute: Partnerships in Education and Resilience (PEAR)

Outward Bound is partnering with The PEAR Institute (Partnerships in Education and Resilience) on a research project to promote our students’ positive social-emotional development. As part of this effort, Outward Bound staff may invite your child to complete a brief survey that is given to students on Outward Bound courses. The survey includes PEAR’s Holistic Student Assessment (HSA) plus several additional questions about students’ social-emotional development and experience while on the course. Your child’s responses will be kept confidential, results will be reported as a group, and his/her name will never be used in any reports related to this research. Data from this survey will be used for research and educational work and only designated Outward Bound staff and Outward Bound’s research partners will have access to the results. YOU ONLY NEED TO RETURN THIS FORM IF YOU DO NOT WANT YOUR CHILD TO COMPLETE THIS SURVEY.
