The Exploring program provides young adults ages 14-21 with hands-on experiences, skills, and opportunities to explore careers and lifetime interests.Through Exploring, you will investigate, learn, experience, be challenged,and have fun! These work-site-based career exploration programs in your area letyou see first-hand what a career really entails.

Exploring's purpose is to provide experiences that help young people mature and toprepare them to become responsible and caring adults. Explorers are readyto 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. Localcommunity organizations initiate a specific Explorer post by matching their people and program resources to the interests of young people in thecommunity.The result is a program of activities that helps youth pursue theirspecial interests, grow, and develop.

Exploring programs are based on five areas of emphasis: career opportunities, life skills, citizenship, character education, and leadership experience.
