Outward Bound & Fidelity Life

Outward Bound is super excited to announce our new partnership with Fidelity Life.
Fidelity Life, New Zealand’s largest locally owned life insurer, is investing in Outward Bound to make a tangible difference to New Zealanders today, and for future generations.
Each year, Fidelity Life will sponsor 20 diverse young New Zealanders to complete a 21-day course at Anakiwa, developing lifelong skills to give back to their communities. 
“Being supported by organisations that understand the value of what we do and how it’s applied to the real world is important - and that’s what we’ve found in Fidelity Life. The sponsorship will make a tangible difference to the lives of the young New Zealanders who receive the Fidelity Life scholarships, and we know they will go on to positively contribute to their communities across New Zealand.” - Malindi MacLean, Outward Bound Chief Executive.
