Explorers helps young adults make informed decisions about future careers. A young adult in the explorer program:
  • Gets involved, learns about a career, and decides to pursue it. 
  • Learns enough about the career to determine it’s not the right fit, which is a better alternative than after spending lots of money on an education only to THEN discover it's not a fit. 

Young men and women between ages 14 (and have completed 8th grade) to 20 are eligible for the program. Color, race, religion, gender, sexual orientation, ethnic background, economic status and citizenship are not criteria for participation.

Explorer leaders volunteer their time to provide real-world career experiences. Explorers is not about lectures and slide shows – it’s about gaining practical experience in a career field.
