Philadelphia Outward Bound School (POBS) is a Pennsylvania 501(c)(3) non-profit educational organization with a mission to change lives through challenge and discovery.  Our vision is ambitious and bold, to create a more resilient and compassionate world, with more resilient and compassionate citizens.

In 1992, Philadelphia leaders, including former Philadelphia Mayor Michael Nutter, established POBS to inspire and equip our region’s young people to succeed in school and life through outdoor learning expeditions that build character and develop leadership skills. Today, in partnership with over 100 schools, corporations, and community nonprofits, POBS serves over 5,000 students per year from its new home at The Discovery Center in East Fairmount Park. Over 75% of program participants are from low-income families; school and student participation is subsidized through scholarship and financial aid.

Corporate sponsorship affords your business the opportunity to participate in the 315 foot rappel, align with a leading youth-serving nonprofit in the region, and also leverage a high-profile marketing opportunity to build your brand awareness and be noted for giving back to your community. Additional sponsorship opportunities are available throughout the year.

Sponsor benefits and exposure opportunities can be customized to align with your company’s goals. 



Is your team ready to go over the edge? Create a corporate rappel team and take on this once in a lifetime by scaling one of Philadelphia’s iconic skyscrapers, while raising funds to deliver programming that helps local youth discover their full potential. Here are some ideas to make the most of this opportunity: 
  • Match the funds your team raises
  • Sponsor your team
  • Challenge your boss to be a “Fearless Leader” and go over the edge!
