Adult Training Courses: Exploring

Exploring Advisors are volunteers, aged 21 and older, who excel in their career fields. They have volunteered their time and skills to be advisors and choose to work with the Exploring program. They enjoy sharing their knowledge and experience in their career field with youth. All adult positions in Exploring need to complete Youth Protection Training and the position-specific training for your registered Scouting position.

Required Exploring Courses

Advisor-Specific Training (required if you are going to be a Post Advisor)
The Advisor is the key adult leader in an Explorer Post and is responsible for training post officers, helping them plan a program of activities, coaching them in their leadership responsibilities, and obtaining adult help and resources as needed through the post committee. Exploring Advisor Position-Specific Training will give you an introduction to everything you need to know about being an Advisor, from helping the post President and other youth leaders run the program to working with the post Committee. When you complete Youth Protection Training and this course, you are considered what we call a “fully trained” Exploring Advisor.

  • Exploring Advisor Position-Specific Training is available anytime at no cost through the Training section of My.Scouting.org.

Post Committee Training (required if you are going to be a Post Committee Chair or Committee Member)
The Committee leads the post committee and serves as the liaison between the post and the participating organization (the agency or business that sponsors the post). Exploring Committee Training will give you an introduction to everything you need to know about being a Committee Chair, including how to plan your post’s yearly program, recruit new youth members, raise money for your post, and evaluate your program’s success. When you complete Youth Protection Training and this course, you are considered what we call a “fully trained” Exploring Committee Chair or Committee Member.
