Outward Bound Hong Kong is one of Project Trust’s longest running gap year projects. The Outward Bound Trust aims to educate and develop the trainees’ personal skills through physical outdoor activities. It organises courses for a wide variety of people, from youth at risk and the socially disadvantaged to businessmen and the disabled.
There are two main sites Outward Bound Hong Kong operates from; Tai Mong Tsai, a particularly beautiful and unspoilt area in the New Territories and the smaller land site at Wong Wan Chau, close to the border with China. You’ll be based in Tai Mong Tsai, so you will be living in a quiet, rural area, very different from the skyscrapers of central Hong Kong, but the city itself is easily accessible.
Outward Bound Hong Kong Gap Year
The Outward Bound Hong Kong gap year project is an extremely rewarding placement. You are given the opportunity to shadow courses upon arrival and as you gain more experience you will take part in leading a group as the year progresses.
During your Hong Kong gap year you will be able to enjoy the surrounding peaks and rural areas in the morning before heading to the bright lights of one of the world’s great city. A year living in Hong Kong will give you a great insight into its complex political and cultural history.
