Safety at Outset

Safety is a top priority for the Outset team. While there are always risks, we aim to minimize bad outcomes.

Our staff know that safety is more important than anything else.

We work with UNC Campus Safety's Protection of Minors office (learn more) to build safe and fun programs for your students.
