Exploring Program

Exploring is a unique career exploration program for young men and women ages 14-20. It provides students with an opportunity to learn about a wide variety of career fields and network with professionals already working in those fields. 

We work with several local businesses and organizations to deliver the Career Exploring program. Visit Exploring.org to get involved!
