We refer to our participants as “Explorers”. Our Explorers are underserved youth, from sixth to twelfth grade.


Our program is unique in that five mentors are chosen to lead each class of Explorers for a minimum of a two-year period.


Our team is made up of qualified, dedicated, experienced people who are committed to making a difference in the lives of underserved youth.


Our Board of Directors and Advisory Council are responsible for the strategic direction and governance of Explore Austin.


Through the donations of our generous supporters, we are able to serve more youth each year and commit to the lives of Austin youth for years to come.
