American Explorers has allowed me to open my eyes and expand my mind. I no longer worry for my future but instead am inspired to better myself, my community, and hopefully someday our world.
What Students say about American Explorers
This was the best thing that I could’ve done. It changed my attitude. I’m more appreciative of the things I have. This experience challenged me to step outside my comfort zone and it pushed me to be better.
I’ve learned more than I ever thought I could, laughed more than I ever thought I would, and grew to love my new friends and co-future leaders.
I know that I have made friendships that will last a lifetime and I know these people will support me whenever I need it.
Six months ago I would never have imagined myself waking up to this view everyday or pushing myself as hard as I have to get here.
I have fun doing different activities, but the best part of this program is that I’m learning about myself and how to sharpen my leadership skills.
American Explorers has me more open-minded to care for others. The people around me feel like family. It has shown me that it is o.k. to be different.
American Explorers is the best experience I have ever been a part of. It has challenged me and pushed me to my limits and I am extremely thankful for that.
I have really seen a growth in my leadership skills, and I have also gotten the chance to get closer to nature. Throughout the expedition I learned a lot about myself. At times I pushed myself to go the extra mile, something I thought I could never do. I learned how to cook in the backcountry and I put my skills into play by actually cooking every morning and night which was a lot of fun. I can honestly say this was one of the best experiences ever. Thank you so much!
American Explorers has changed me. Through this experience, I feel like I can help make my community a place where all feel safe to walk around at night, and parents are happy to see kids pursue their dreams.
