Exploring is a career education program for young men and women who are at least 14 (and have completed the 8th grade) and not 21 years old. Adults are selected by the participating organization for involvement in the program. 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. Typically, a young adult will either: 1) get involved, learn about a career, and decide to pursue it; OR 2) learn enough about the career to determine it’s not the right fit for them. It’s better to learn as a young adult that a career is not for you, than after spending lots of money on an education only to THEN discover you don’t like the career!!
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 helps youth pursue their special interests, grow, and develop!
We currently have several Exploring opportunities with: High Point Police, High Point Fire Dept., Piedmont Triad Ambulance and Rescue (Medical), Pleasant Grove Fire, Burlington Fire, Elon College Fire, Burlington Police, Graham Police, Swepsonville Fire, Greensboro Fire Department, Guilford County Sheriffs’ Department, TAA Flight Training (Aviation Post and Middle School Club), Reidsville Fire, Reidsville Police, Mebane Police and Mebane Fire (Brand New!) and Asheboro Police Department!
