It’s time to take a fresh look at Exploring

A young person’s window to an exciting career just got a lot more awesome.

Yes, it’s time to take a new look at Exploring, the career exploration Scouting program for young people ages 14 to 20.

Exploring, an affiliate of the Boy Scouts of America, lets teens get a taste of a career that interests them through exciting, hands-on exposure they can’t get in school — or anywhere else, really.

And with a new tagline — “Discover Your Future” — a phenomenal new website, and teen-targeted imagery, Exploring is ready to reintroduce itself to the world.

I mean, just watch this terrific video to get a sense of the you-can’t-do-this-elsewhere experiences awaiting Explorers.
