Since our founding, our company has set out to become a leading Australasian educational travel company that schools prefer, parents trust and young people remember forever.
Our mission is to give young people the tools to imagine a world without boundaries, to live a life of unlimited possibility.
Student Experience comes first and is at the centre of everything that we do.
Student experience influences all of our decision making, not just some, and is the fundamental pillar that holds up our organisation. Our team members live and breathe student experience – it’s in our DNA.
Just ask them and they’ll tell you. It reaches the furthest edges of our organisation and is the reason why we all show up to work day in and day out, regardless of bottom line.
Our programs are intentionally designed to build on what is taught in the classroom by transporting the textbook to the real world. We develop character and skills for life through creating outdoor education, travel and community service experiences.
Each and every young person that is given the opportunity to participate in OutBeyond’s programs, has a story. A story before they arrive, a story whilst they are undertaking our programs, and the story they go on to live, as they look forward and head off into the real world with new skills and as young adults. Our intentionally designed programs aim to lift participants up, boost leadership capacity, spark self and team-confidence, and unlock unrealised potential.
We feel honored to be a part of an organisation that contributes to a small but significant part of a young person's story.
Not all young people are given the opportunity to develop a relationship with leadership, often because they might not fit the status quo of a ‘leader’. So, many young people whom may have not been given the opportunity to learn and practice leadership in simulated environments, fall through the cracks and may never realise their true potential of leadership.
We are interested in ensuring that schools continuously innovate the way in which they develop moral character and life skills in the future leaders and global citizens of the world.
Some big questions we ask ourselves when constructing our programs are:
How will our programs remain fun and engaging?
How will the learning within our programs assist schools with their curriculum objectives?
How will our programs do more than prepare young people for the world of work; instead equip students with the skills they need to become active, responsible and engaged global citizens.
We are not interested in catching up to traditional providers with traditional thinking.
