In Japanese, "ai" means "love" ... so "ai explore" in this case translates to "I LOVE to explore!"

What do we explore? Experiences!

What kind of experiences? Ones that inspire love, optimism, fulfillment, interpersonal connection, and community-in-action.

Ai Explore is the explorer's club dedicated to uncovering the optimism in everyone, everywhere.

I started the group because there wasn't any other type of group like this. I've met some great folks in the group who have become close friends and have also met some amazing business owners.
