The Exploring program teaches teamwork, leadership, and other life skills, with a particular focus on the development of career interests. These tools equip Explorers to effectively and productively contribute to collaborative efforts and cooperate with people who are different from themselves. In a typical three-month period, more than nine of 10 Explorers agree that their participation in the program helped them learn to get along with people who are different from themselves (94 percent) and learned something about how to be a team player and work in a group (93 percent). Also, about eight of 10 (79 percent) participated in group discussions, whereas just under three of four (72 percent) participated in a vote or decision made by the group.

Conflict resolution is an outcome of participation in the Exploring program, as 76 percent of members agree that they were able to resolve conflicts they had with others while participating in Exploring outings and activities.
