Exploring is a career education program for young men and women ages 14-20. Local community organizations initiate an Exploring Post by matching their people and program resources to the interests of young people in the community. This results in hands-on activities that help youth pursue their interests, grow and develop.

How do I start an Exploring Program at my organization?

How does Exploring help me with college?

Exploring can help students planning on attending college clearly identify a path for achieving their degree with a specific emphasis. The exposure to career advice, paths, and insight from professionals who have already achieved success affords the students a clearly outlined guide to their own success. With the soaring costs of a higher education, the faster a student can excel, the better.

Can I attend more than one program at a time during a week/month?

Yes! The best and brightest Explorers take advantage of nearly every one of our programs, sometimes going to a different program each day of the week! Remember, even if you think you know what you want to be, it can't hurt to learn about other possibilities as this will broaden your knowledge base an inevitably aid your success!

Can I bring a friend who does not attend the same high school as me?

Yes! As long as your friend is enrolled in a North Florida high school or academic program and is between the ages of 14 and 20 he/she can attend with you. Remember though, all attendees to our programs must be registered Explorers! That means you have to fill out an application and pay the registration fee, unless your school or partner organization covers this cost.
