    Program Spotlight: Explorer Posts - Calling all young people (14-20 years, co-ed) who want to discover what career to pursue!! Join the National Exploring Program today to gain hands-on experience. Take the free Career Interest Surveys to find out what career you want to EXPLORE:  National Career Survey: https://exploringyourcareer.com. Students should pick just ONE 1st choice and ONE 2nd choice from the entire list of career choices, NOT from EACH section as stated in the survey!

    Local Career Survey: Once students know what they are interested in, they can complete the Exploring Interest Survey Form and the Exploring Executive will match youth to existing Exploring Posts in their areas and/or start a new post to meet the career interests of the youth.
