About Explorers and Exploring
- Exploring is a worksite-based program. It is part of the Boy Scouts of America’s Learning for Life’s career education program for young men and women who are 14 years-old and have completed the 8th grade, through 20 years-old.
- 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.
- Exploring is based on a unique and dynamic relationship between youth and the organizations in their communities. Local community organizations, like the Seal Beach Police Department, 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 special interests, grow, and develop.
- Exploring programs are based on five areas of emphasis:
- Career opportunities
- Life skills
- Character education
- Leadership experience
