Exploring is a program for boys and girls ages 14 through 20 focused on teaching youth about career fields that might interest them and encourage them to prepare for the future. In doing so, the program aims to build self-worth and self-confidence in youth. In part, it does this by providing an atmosphere of teamwork, learning, and accomplishment. Explorer posts can specialize In a variety of career fields, including Arts & Humanities, Aviation, Business, Communications, Engineering, Fire Service, Health, Law Enforcement, Law & Government, Science, Skilled Trades, and Social Services. Working with community leaders in these specific career focused programs, youth members gain experience through hands on activities as well as gain leadership skills. Each Explorer Post has elected youth members that provide leadership to their fellow peers during various meetings, activities and hand-on experiences while guided by professionals in these fields. Explorer members gain:

  • Career Opportunities
  • Life Skills
  • Citizenship
  • Character Education
  • Leadership Experience
According to a national study conducted by Louis Harris & Associates, the Exploring program contributes to the healthy development of today's young adults by providing them with the environment, resources, and relationships they need to learn and grow.
