Let's raise support for connecting 300 youth to nature, peers, and caring, adult mentors!

Explore Austin's Quest for the Summit 2021 is back in micro-event fashion! On May 7th, hosts across Austin and the U.S. will be gathering in celebration and support of the 300 youth and 100 volunteer Mentors in the program. Even if you are not at a micro-event, you can still help move the mission of Explore Austin forward by bidding on our auction items or donating to the mission.

Your support will go to support 300 youth and 100 volunteer Mentors in the Explore Austin program learn leadership and outdoor skills while connecting with and building community too. Now more than ever, we know community matters, nature matters, and empowering youth to take on tomorrow matters. Jude said it best about the impact of Explore Austin on her: "Nature can bring you and other people together." Let's join her in breathing life into other Explorer stories too!
