Exploring’s purpose:

Exploring is the premier career-awareness program for high school students in New York City. By opening the doors of businesses, non-profit organizations and law enforcement agencies to young people, the program gives students first-hand information about what specific careers actually entail. They learn what they like and don’t like and the education they will need to succeed. This helps them sustain the motivation to achieve their goals.



Deliver character-building experiences and mentorship that allow youth to achieve their full potential in both life and work.


Shape the workforce of tomorrow by engaging and mentoring today’s youth in career and life-enhancing opportunities.


Bring businesses and community leaders together to help young people reach their full potential.
