Exploring is a career education program for high school age young men and women based on a unique and dynamic connection between youth and the businesses in their communities. Local organizations are matched to the interests of young people in the community using the Student Career Interest Survey. The result is a program of activities that helps youth pursue their special interests, grow, and develop. Many times these programs provide a hands-on experience, which could enhance financial success, career preparation, and college endorsements.
