In 2007, NorthStar was created to focus on the needs of North Omaha’s young men, with the goal of helping them grow into healthy, educated, employed contributors to the community. For over 50 years, Outward Bound has been a premier provider of experience-based outdoor leadership programs. As part of its mission to engage youth in North Omaha, NorthStar established the Omaha Outward Bound School in 2009 to provide challenge and discovery courses for local students. 

Brag Lines

The 2018 Climb Higher Event is an annual fundraiser supporting outdoor experiential opportunities for North Omaha students in need. This year’s Climb Higher Luncheon will feature keynote speaker Conrad Anker, a renowned rock climber, mountaineer, and author. Conrad has summited Mount Everest three times, and his team was the first to reach the top of the Shark’s Fin on Mount Meru, one of the most difficult mountain peaks in the world.
