Youth Benefits

Students & Parents

Exploring is a unique career exploration program for young men and women ages 10 - 20. The program provides students with an opportunity to learn about a wide variety of career fields and network with professionals already working in those fields. You get hands-on experience to determine whether or not a particular career field is right for you. You develop valuable networking contacts with professionals working in your selected career fields, and you get to know other youth with your same interests and aspirations.

Exploring is the first step in identifying career possibilities while having fun in an exciting and informal environment.

Student Benefits:

  • Strong personal values and character development
  • Build self-worth and self-confidence
  • Leadership skills training and development
  • Social development
  • Unique career experiences, networking & internships
  • Personal growth
  • Volunteer opportunities
  • Group collaboration and teamwork
  • Scholarships available only to Explorers
  • Add Exploring to your college, job and scholarship applications!

Most Exploring programs align with the school calendar and begin in the fall, while some also offer summer activities, annual conferences, internships and other events. Most meet once or twice a month throughout the year.
