Jim Wyatt lives in Pasadena, but this is the second year in a row that he will travel to San Francisco to rappel for Outward Bound California in the City Skyline Challenge.
Jim says that Outward Bound alumni “show some real stuff” when they return, and this was certainly true of his own children. “When they came back there was a great degree of maturity.”
Jim later attended a number of Outward Bound courses himself, including a trip to Patagonia. He always found the trips rigorous and interesting.
In terms of his philanthropy, Jim has always been drawn to helping young people. At Outward Bound California, Jim’s support funds scholarships for young people to go expeditions just like those that his own kids attended 20 years ago. “One thing that we really need to do in our country is to help kids. And what better way than to help kids from the city to get off the streets in the summer time?”
Outward Bound California is grateful to Jim Wyatt for his ongoing support of Pinnacle Scholarships. Thank you, Jim! We really appreciate your generosity.
You too can make a difference in the lives of deserving youth! Consider making a contribution today.
