CONNECT + BUILD COMMUNITY
DiscoveryBound supports people in their 20s/30s to make meaningful connections and build community through local, national and international events in a supportive Christian Science atmosphere with opportunities to participate, organize, mentor, chaperone and more!
20s/30s LOCALLY GROWN
These grassroots activities are organized by 20s/30s for 20s/30s and include game nights, potlucks, hiking, ultimate frisbee, volunteering, and more. They’re a perfect opportunity to hang out with others in an organic and authentic atmosphere. If you’d like to organize DB get togethers in your area, DB will contribute up to $50 (with receipts) four times per year per area. Please contact our DB Young Adult Manager for more information. Scroll down to the event calendar at the bottom of this page to see upcoming events.
Connect with others in their 20s and 30s during fun and inspiring weekends in a supportive Christian Science atmosphere that is free from judgement and is accepting of everyone.
DiscoveryBound Outreach offers a $500 stipend to 20s/30s who plan these weekends for groups of approximately 20 people and provides support, advertising, and subsidizes the cost by up to $1000. Contact the DB Young Adult Manager if you are interested in being a stipend organizer.
If you are interested in attending one of these weekends and need financial assistance to travel, complete and submit this form for 50% of airfares up to $150. Scroll down to the event calendar at the bottom of this page to see upcoming events.
Join us on our 4-night trips to breath-taking locations around the USA. In 2019, we will be going to the gorgeous Arches National Park near Moab, UT. See the event calendar below for more information.
20s/30s INTERNATIONAL ADVENTURES

Join the conversation and stay informed about upcoming 20s/30s events. This online community is specifically for people in their 20s/30s everywhere and is a great virtual location to connect and support each other.
YOUNG ADULT RESEARCH
We’re listening to you! Adventure Unlimited, DiscoveryBound’s parent organization, hired a research consultant to conduct focus groups and interviews with 20s/30s in an effort to better know what you would like to see us provide for you. You can see the results here.
As a result of the findings from this research and the recommendations made to the organization, we have created the new position DB Young Adult Manager to provide focussed support in networking, planning and advertising events. We have increased the number of stipend 20s/30s weekends to five per year and the level of support for locally grown activities by offering $50 (with receipts) four times per year per area toward expenses.
20s/30s are also needed to share their skills with DiscoveryBound through a variety of volunteer roles. In addition to organizing local activities, some other opportunities include: starting an Outreach Chapter and being a Chapter Worker, Outreach Chaperone, National Leadership Council (NLC) Mentor, National Leadership Council (NLC) Leader or Compass Guide. The NLC Alumni Initiative is another way to engage with community service.
