What is Exploring?
Exploring is a career education program for young men and women from high school up to 20 years of age. Part of Learning for Life, Exploring seeks out local business partners to host hands-on training programs for local youth. High schoolers do not have to be involved in Scouting to participate. The Middle Tennessee Council offers programs in most career fields.
Why should my child participate in Exploring?
Exploring's purpose is to provide experiences that help young people mature and to prepare them to become responsible and caring adults. Explorers are ready to investigate the meaning of interdependence in their personal relationships and communities.
What will my child do?
Exploring is based on a unique and dynamic relationship between youth and organizations in their communities. Local community organizations initiate a specific Explorer Post by matching their people and program resources to the interests of young people in the community. The result is a program of activities that helps youth pursue their career interests, grow, and develop.
