“Amy Biehl High School is excited to offer our LGBTQI students the opportunity to develop self-advocacy skills, create community amongst their peers and build self-confidence through experiential learning summits at the Santa Fe Mountain Center. LGBTQI youth face a variety of challenges because of how others respond to and judge their sexual orientation and/or gender identity. Negative experiences can lead to negative health outcomes including anxiety, stress and feelings of isolation. The Santa Fe Mountain Center allows students to interact with peers who are having the same experiences, build relationships and learn coping skills resulting in higher levels of social and emotional health.”
