|"Exploring gives you a chance to do things and go places that you would not otherwise do or visit."|
The Exploring program matches youth who share common career interests with community members who can inform, encourage, and develop those interests. Given Exploring's goals, perhaps it is not surprising that in a typical three-month period, a majority of Explorers have learned about a career field.
Explorers value the program for these new learning experiences. In total, 96 percent agree that Exploring gives them a chance to do things and go places they would not be able to experience otherwise.
In general, further learning is important to the youth involved in the Exploring program: 99 percent of Explorers say that going to college is important to them.
