Our trainers

…are specially trained, educated and assigned to OUTWARD BOUND depending on the course setting and required competencies.

Our trainers have many years of experience in accompanying learning processes of young people. In addition to experiential education or additional training, our trainers have specialized sports qualifications. We pay attention to regular safety and pedagogical training and further education. Our trainers are therefore optimally trained for the supervision of different groups and are able to respond individually to the group processes. All trainers passionately support value-oriented personal development and team building according to the OUTWARD BOUND philosophy.

The subjective psychological and physical sense of security of the participants and the trust placed in the trainers is the basis for an open exchange and profound development of the individuals within the group.

Our management team

Christine Mangold

Managing Director

The human being, his personal development and a new improved value-based social coexistence, accompany me throughout my life and drive me. Nature, with which I feel very connected, is the perfect teacher. In the meantime, I am in my 6th year as an enthusiastic executive director at Outward Bound and am happy with my colleagues about many positive movements and projects. Especially now in times of increasing social distancing and digitalization, I see an even greater need for experiential education work and look forward to our joint successes.
