What Is Exploring

Exploring is Learning for Life’s career education program for young me and women who are at least 14 (and have completed 8th grade) and not yet 21 years old. It provides youth an opportunity to learn about a wide variety of career fields and network with professionals already working in those fields.

Exploring is all about helping young adults make a more informed decision about future careers and determine if a particular career is the right one for them. Youth develop valuable networking contacts with professionals working in their selected career fields, and get to know other teenagers and young adults sharing the same interests and aspirations.

Exploring leaders volunteer their time to provide real-world career experiences for young adults. Exploring is not about lectures and slide shows- it’s about gaining practical experience in a career field. The result is a program of activities that help youth pursue their special interests, grow, and develop.

Youth Benefits:

Exploring Programs range from six, eight, to twelve months in length with potential summer activities, conferences, internships, and other events. Programs meet a minimum of once a month.
