Today’s youth are in crisis. Young people, starting as young as elementary school ages, are experiencing unprecedented levels of stress and anxiety. This increased pressure means providing a support system for developing young people is more important than ever.


In times of intensified anxiety resulting from the pandemic and the heightened stress youth in low-income families inherently face, Explore Austin provides a sense of normalcy, a safe space to talk about new challenges and to have FUN. Your gift to Explore Austin today means we can continue to be constant - facilitating adventure for youth who desperately need time outside with peers and adults they trust. As Explorers gain technical outdoor skills they develop confidence, integrity, and courage to pursue their own version of success. Community. Confidence. Character. It all starts with adventure… and adventure begins with you!
