Changing Lives. Changing Society.

Wow, Elyse! We are so proud, and humbled, to support and partner with Elyse Rylander as a trailblazer in the outdoor industry for LGBTQ communities.

Elyse Rylander
As the founder of Out There Adventures, we are lucky to have had Elyse support Northwest Outward Bound School in our own diversity and equity training, as well as our program designs. This summer she will be leading our Mt Jefferson Backpacking Course for LGBTQ Young Adults. Thanks for inspiring and being a role model for us all, Elyse!

“‘There is this need to connect and to find a community,’ Rylander says, noting that queer high-schoolers often feel ostracized in their schools or peer groups.”
