Alabama Outward Bound School
Outward Bound is a non-profit educational organization and expeditionary learning school. We serve people of all ages and backgrounds through active learning expeditions that inspire character development, self-discovery and service both in and out of the classroom. Outward Bound delivers programs using unfamiliar settings as a way for participants to experience adventure and challenge in a way that helps students realize they can do more than they thought possible. Customized courses provide curricula developed for struggling teens, groups with specific health, social or educational needs, business and professional organizations and faith based communities.

To that end, the museum will collect, conserve, exhibit, study, and interpret the art of the South within the context of the region's history and culture.
