Virtual or In-Person Career Experiences

Exploring guides young men and women to learn about career opportunities, leadership, citizenship, life skills, and character. Providing meaningful career education, activities, and opportunities for all teenagers and young adults in their chosen field of interest, Exploring is for youth looking to discover their future.


What is Exploring? Exploring is a co-ed youth program for young men and women in the 6th grade thru 20 years old. Exploring exists to teach important life and career skills to young people from all backgrounds through immersive career experiences and mentorship. Exploring offers hands-on career discovery through interactive activities that help youth pursue special interests, grow, and develop. Local Exploring groups – called Posts – may be boy-only, girl-only, or co-ed.

These experiences equip young people with character, leadership and life skills that can be used both today and in their future careers. Often, Explorers develop valuable professional contacts that are impactful when entering the workforce. And sometimes, the greatest lesson Explorers learn is that the career they thought they wanted to pursue is, in fact, not what they thought it was.
