At Winter Wildlands Alliance, we believe in the power of the outdoors to bring people together, foster personal growth, and build inclusive communities. This Pride Month, we are excited to introduce you to one of our new SnowSchool sites, Lambert House. Lambert House is dedicated to supporting LGBTQ+ youth in Seattle, and we are thrilled to support them through SnowSchool. 

About Lambert House

Lambert House provides a safe place for lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, and questioning (LGBTQ+) youth ages 10-22. At Lambert House, LGBTQ+ youth make life better for each other. With range of programs, Lambert House empowers young people to explore their identities and build friendships while developing leadership, social, and life skills.

Lambert House and SnowSchool

In 2023, Lambert House joined Winter Wildlands Alliance’s national network of SnowSchool program sites to help their long-standing snowshoe and outdoor recreation program make a comeback following the pandemic. “We are rebuilding in-person programs,” said Program Director, Brandon Knox, noting that they could especially use assistance with “fundraising, equipment, and curriculum.” This past winter, the program successfully rebounded, taking a handful of youth out on snowshoes!

The program aims to continue growing, and Winter Wildlands Alliance is dedicated to supporting this effort and increasing material support for SnowSchool sites in local communities everywhere.
