Learning For Life's Exploring Programs


Exploring is a career education program for young men and women who are at least 14 or 15 years of age but not yet 21 years old in the Greater Los Angeles Area Council.  Adults are selected by the participating organization for involvement in the program. Color, race, religion, gender, sexual orientation, ethnic background, economic status, and citizenship are not criteria for participation.

Exploring’s purpose is to provide experiences to help young people and to prepare them to become responsible and caring adults.  Explorers are ready to investigate the meaning of interdependence in their personal relationships and communities.  

GLAAC Exploring is based on a unique and dynamic relationship between youth and the organizations in their communities. Local community organizations initiate an Explorer post by matching their people and program resources to the interests of young people in the greater Los Angeles community.
