Mission of Exploring

Exploring’s purpose is to provide experiences to help youth mature and to prepare them to become responsible and caring adults. Exploring is based on a unique and dynamic relationship between youth and the organizations in their communities. Local businesses and organizations initiate an Explorer post by matching their professionals and program resources to the interests of the youth in the community.
