Summit Mentorship

"It's hard to be what you can't see." An idea we've hear d and said time and time again. Through our SUMMIT Mentorship program, OTA offers LGBTQ youth the opportunity to connect with an LGBTQ adult* while exploring the natural world. Over two months the mentors and students will meet each week to embark on a number of exciting adventures. No cost to participate and no experience necessary for the youth.
