Exploring is part of the Learning for Life career-based education program for young men and women who are 14 (and completed the 8th grade) or 15 - 20 years old.
The program prepares young people to become responsible and caring adults. Explorers investigate the meaning of interdependence in their personal relationships and communities.
Exploring is based on a unique and dynamic relationship between youth and the organizations in their communities. Local community organizations initiate an Explorer post by matching their people and program resources to the interests of young people in the community. The result is a program of activities that helps youth pursue their special interests, grow and develop.
Explorer posts can specialize in a variety of career skills. Exploring programs are based on five areas of emphasis: career opportunities, life skills, service learning, character education and leadership experience.
