American Explorers


American Explorers is honored to have the opportunity to help the Westside community uncover one of their most valuable resources: their youth. Our selection process ensures that we assemble a diverse class of students who are driven, enthusiastic, have the potential to lead and are committed to participating in all four years of the program. Students must currently be in the 8th or 9th grade and reside in the 30310, 30311, 30314 or 30318 zip codes of Atlanta’s Westside neighborhoods in order to participate. 

To be considered, submit a completed program application, a recommendation form (to be filled out by a teacher, coach, school administrator, mentor, etc.) and participate in individual and group interviews.
