Explore Austin

Location: Austin, Texas

Explore Austin is an organization dedicated to empowering youth through the outdoors. Explore Austin uses mentoring, leadership, and outdoor adventure to provide social-emotional learning for children, improving the well-being of the children, their families, volunteers, and the community. Explore Austin focuses on three main goals- to empower perseverance and self-efficacy through outdoor adventure, increase confidence through leadership, and enhance social capital through mentoring.

Explore Austin matches high potential, sixth grade “Explorers” with adult mentors, and they embark on a six-year journey with the outdoors. Each year, the explorers participate in nine Saturday Challenges and a week-long Summer Wilderness Trip that works towards hitting all of their aforementioned goals.
