Outward Bound scholarships available

05 April 2018

The Mayors Taskforce for Jobs (MTFJ) has scholarships available for their Mind Body Soul Outward Bound course.

Outward Bound

Our Mayor Sandra would like to nominate someone in our district aged between 16-18 years old in our district who would benefit from this opportunity to spend 21 days developing themselves and their skill base.

The Mind Body Soul course can help you achieve your goal,  whether that’s going to university or polytech, taking on a leadership role at school or simply making new friends. You’ll leave this 21 day adventure fitter and stronger, with new social skills and more confidence in group situations.

This action-packed adventure will reveal your true strengths and you’ll spend time with your instructor learning how to apply these skills to everyday life.

The course organisers say participants will gain a real sense of independence and a new positive mind-set, and be open to whatever challenge comes their way.

There are two upcoming courses:

  • 2 July – 22 July 2018
  • 23 September – 13 October 2018

Please send your nominations to

Travel to Anakiwa is not covered by the scholarship, therefore nominees will be required to undertake some fundraising and must pass a medical check.
