EXPLORING.ORG GOT AN UPGRADE – AND IT’S AMAZING
Youth and young adults today want more control over the choices they make regarding their future and Exploring is making it easier than ever to make it happen. How? Officially launching today, www.Exploring.org is new and improved with features that make youth career exploration hassle-free and exciting. Practically everything about what Exploring.org looked like before has been polished up to be easy to use and easy on the eyes.
At first glance you’ll notice a new logo design, complete with a new tagline, “Discover Your Future.” The new Exploring tagline highlights what matters most: offering hands-on experiences that develop leadership, character and confidence while providing a clear vision toward a career path.
Once you start combing through the site, you’ll see new images of Explorers in a variety of fields of interest. Exploring provides practical, interactive experiences with career professionals in 16 fields – including, STEM, finance, law, architecture, and agriculture. The “Career Fields” tab on the top navigation and the tiled icons on the homepage make it simple to explore those career fields. Also on the top nav, you can easily access the Exploring Career Interest Survey, learn about the program and upcoming events, reach out via the “Contact Us” page, and learn how to find and join an Exploring post near you by clicking “Get Involved.” Whether you’re an organization or a youth looking to get involved, there’s a place for you to get all the details.
If you scroll to the bottom of the homepage you’ll find Exploring resources like forms, training and safety documents, and details on awards like scholarships. Coming soon, the site will also house an “Activity Library,” full of activity guides and other resources to serve any post’s needs.
