3rd Annual “Quest for the Summit” Reaches New Peak for Explore Austin

Posted at April 6, 2012 by Comments Off on 3rd Annual “Quest for the Summit” Reaches New Peak for Explore Austin




It was an Everest caliber climb to the top at the 3rd Annual “Quest for the Summit” reception benefiting Explore Austin. Event Chairs Catherine Granger and Catherine Parks had plenty of help and the perfect weather for an extraordinary evening. Friends and fans of Explore Austin gathered at Contigo where they visited with friends, met some outstanding young men, sampled the cuisine (again and again!), and enjoyed the music of Paul Banks. The food and music alone were superb rewards for attending, but advancing the mission of Explore Austin is the best reward of all.
“Founded in 2006, Explore Austin combines the benefits of mentoring and outdoor adventure in a six-year program for 6th through 12th grade inner-city youth. Focusing on team building and leadership training by utilizing its unique ACES framework, Explore Austin helps Explorers” (we refer to participants as Explorers) increase self-confidence, build character, and develop a sense of responsibility for themselves and those around them. With seven Saturday Events and a week long Summer Wilderness Trip to remote destinations, Explore Austin seeks and attracts motivated students who desire to learn how to become leaders, experience new places, make lasting friendships, and seek challenges. Our hands-on approach and belief in learning by doing means our Explorers leave the program more confident, more experienced, and ready to lead.”
