Explore Austin uses mentoring, leadership, and outdoor adventure to empower youth to reach their full potential. Through a leadership-based outdoor adventure curriculum coupled with social-emotional learning components and long-term mentoring, Explore Austin is improving the well-being of each participant, their families, and the community.
This event will be held at the Line Austin Hotel. Once home to a jazz club that broadcast live on local radio in the late 1960s, the hotel is part of downtown Austin history and carries with it a storied legacy that the Line seeks to foster and continue. The redesign of the 1965 building, a collaboration between Austin architect Michael Hsu and LA-based designer Sean Knibb, showcases art by emerging local artists throughout the property. The Line also hosts events and programs that build on the hotel’s historic cultural contribution and pay tribute to the unique character of Austin.
