Why is Career Exploring so important?

When we think of preparing our children for college, we often think of written tests, good grades and how on earth we will afford it. Wouldn’t it be nice if your child could arrive a few steps ahead, ready to focus and with a good idea of what he or she really wants out of it?  That’s where Exploring comes in! The Exploring program serves youth ages 10-20, providing an opportunity to learn about a wide variety of career fields and network with seasoned professionals in a hands-on environment. Whether your son or daughter aspires to be a paramedic, a robotics engineer, or a business tycoon, we’ve probably got a program ready for them to discover. You can help cultivate your child’s dreams by joining an Explorer Post in your community. The Northeast Illinois Council supports career development from the Fire Explorers of Evanston to the Abbott Robotics Explorers of North Chicago. Help foster your child’s aspirations by finding an Explorer Post near you today!
