Lake District Career Exploring
Exploring is the worksite-based program of Learning for Life, and focuses on involving teenagers in clubs, called posts, that allow young people to learn about possible careers, form friendships, develop leadership skills, and enjoy activities with like-minded teens and adults. Each post is open to young men and women who are 15 to 20 years old. Teens who are 14 and have graduated from eighth grade are also eligible to join. All Explorers (teenage post members) are under the supervision of adults who serve as post advisors. The Explorers elect their own peer leaders to serve as post officers, subject to the approval of the adult advisors. Exploring’s purpose is to provide experiences that help young people mature and to prepare them to become responsible and caring adults. The result is a program of activities that helps youth pursue their special interests, grow, and develop.
Lake District has a very strong and growing base of Career Exploring Programs. Our flagship and current program is in partnership with the Lake County Sheriffs Office, Post 60. Several programs are in the planning stages and are coming on board during the 2015 year, the career they will explore are the medical fields and law and government.
