What are Explorers?
Exploring is a worksite-based program for young men and women who are 14 (and have completed the eighth grade) through 20 years of age. Explorer Post organizations match youth career interests and develop activities that initiate growth, learning and development. Currently Posts are collaborating with Police and Fire Departments, Law and Government Professionals, STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math) Professionals, Aviation, Veterinarians, and more. Students have the potential to job shadow, submit for scholarships, learn the type of skills and abilities required of a specific job, have executive level mentors, and the opportunity to attend national conferences and competitions. Explorer Posts provide programs focused on Leadership, Drug Prevention, Character Education and more.
Teens attending the "First Night" gathering will chart the course of the Post deciding when and how often the group will meet. Future year's themes will be decided by Post membership and may rotate through several career options.
