The social club was formed in December 2014 with a simple but important mission ― to Have FUN and make a DIFFERENCE. We accomplish the first part of our mission through an adventure-driven event program. We accomplish the second part through a a series of community service initiatives such as our Civil Conversations Project, our Give Back ATL program, our annual Winter Coat Drive and our ongoing Volunteer Work.
Hands down, the best reason to join Urban Explorers of Atlanta is its members. As of December 31, 2017 we had about 300 members. Our club is unique in that most of our members are mid to late-career professionals. The ratio of single vs married is 50/50. Our members are smart, successful and interesting. They also like to have fun! Naturally, we like to explore. We immerse ourselves in Atlanta's culture, its history and its food! We are interested in our city's past, present and future. You should also know that our members care about Atlanta. We care about its people, its history and its future. This unique combination of adventure and service forms the basis of our club's mission, which is to have FUN and make a DIFFERENCE. If this point resonates with you, there is a very good chance you will enjoy being a member of our club.
Our club hosts hundreds of events each year. About half of these are tours, most of which are open to the public. The others are a combination of culinary adventures, cultural experiences and educational opportunities. These are for members only.
If you look at our Membership Options you will see that we offer several types of memberships. The main difference has to do with the types of events each has access to.
*** As you know, many services charge "convenience" fees of $5-10 per ticket for ordering tickets online. Urban Explorers of Atlanta does not charge any such fees.
