Exploring. Chart A Course.
Young men and women 14-20 years old (or 13 and have completed eighth grade)
Exploring is about helping young adults make a more informed decision about future careers and determine if a particular career is the right one for them.
Typically, a young adult will learn about a career and decide to pursue it OR learn enough about the career to determine it’s not the right fit for them. It’s better to learn as a young adult that a career is not for you than to spend lots of money on an education only to then discover you don’t like a career!
In the Exploring program, youth gain unique, real-life opportunities to experience varied career choices. It’s not about lectures and slide shows- it’s about gaining practical insight and hands-on knowledge in a career field.
Exploring offers experiences in a variety of career fields. Try one or try them all!
- Arts & Humanities
- Fire Service
- Law Enforcement
- Skilled Trades
