OUR COMMUNITY PARTNERS
We have learned alongside our Community Partners as they have faced challenges, overcome barriers, and achieved extraordinary successes. Find out more about each project and the outcomes below.
Leadership, Mentoring, and Outdoor Access Program
Through outdoor adventure and long-term mentorship, Explore Austin supports youth from communities historically lacking access to green space as they develop into confident adults. As youth gain a variety of outdoor skills and form close bonds with trusted peers and mentors, they develop the confidence, integrity, and courage to pursue their own versions of success.
The grant from Impact Austin will allow Explore Austin to grow their program to reach more vulnerable youth by expanding into new, underserved areas. Additionally, Explore Austin proposes to expand employment opportunities for Explorer alumni and their families and to add an evidence-based environmental curriculum to their program.
