Discover Your Future Career
Exploring provides exciting activities and mentorship for youth looking to discover their future. Whether you’re a local organization looking to strengthen the community or a young person wanting to uncover the possibilities of your future, Exploring is a great place to start.
Exploring exists to teach important life and career skills to young people from all backgrounds through immersive career experiences and mentorship provided by community and business leaders like you. Together, we equip young people with character, leadership, and life skills, which may be used both today and in their future careers.
Exploring is based on a unique and dynamic relationship between youth and the organizations in their communities. Businesses and community organizations initiate a career-specific Exploring post or club by matching their people and organizational resources to the career interests of youth in the community. The result is a program of interactive activities that helps youth pursue their special interests, grow, and develop.
We work with thousands of local, regional, and national businesses and organizations to deliver the Exploring programs representing hundreds of different career fields.
Exploring programs are an excellent way for young men and women ages 10 to 20 to learn about different career fields and paths. Participants determine what career they want to pursue by getting hands-on, real-world experience such as networking with industry professionals and learning how the business works. The opportunities and networking provide participants with invaluable experience and contacts to reference as they pursue their careers in the future. Exploring is designed to provide youth with career success and personal development.
