Exploring is an opportunity for young women and young men to gain real life career experience first-hand from businesses in their community! As a career education program, Exploring partners local businesses with youth, ages 14 – 20, in order to provide unique and exciting experiences that offer insight into the day to day operations of a multitude of careers. The Exploring program’s primary goal is to help young adults make more informed decisions about their future careers and whether a particular career is right for them. As an Explorer they will be able to have experiences that focus on: Career Opportunities, Life Skills, Leadership Experiences, Character Education and Citizenship. It is our hope that they can find out enough about a career before investing time, energy and money into pursuing training or a degree in that field.
A few of our outstanding partners that help make this program happen are; Denver Zoo, Lockheed Martin Space Systems, Denver Health, Wheat Ridge Animal Hospital, Law Enforcement agencies across the Denver Metro Area, St. Anthony North Health Campus, Black & Veatch, Castle Rock Fire Department, and many more!
For our business partners, this is a recognized opportunity to address workforce retention, workforce development and invest in pre-on-the-job training for these potential future employees.
