Established in 2009, Outward Bound Center for Peacebuilding (OBCP) focuses on using outdoor experiential learning as a powerful approach to challenge and inspire leaders in divided societies to build peace. OBCP engaged a Capstone team in developing codified tools and processes for collecting and measuring the impact of its peacebuilding programs over time. The team focused its work on OBCP's Practicum on Experiential Peacebuilding (PEP) program, designed for working professionals and students to develop their conflict resolution and leadership skills. The team conducted a literature review, environmental scan, and various interviews with OBCP staff members, PEP program facilitators, and alumni. With this research, the team developed a series of evaluation instruments, including process evaluation, outcome evaluation, and story banking methods, as well as recommendations for implementation.
