Exploring is learning for Life's career education program for young men and women who are 14 (and have
completed the eight grade) or are 15 to 20 years old.  Adults are selected by the participating organization for
involvement in the program.  Color, race, gender, sexual orientation, ethnic background or economic status
are not criteria for participation.  

Exploring's purpose is to provide experiences to help young people mature 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.

Exploring is based on a unique and dynamic relationship between youth and the organizations in their
communities.  Departments or agencies initiate an Explorer post by matching their people and program of
activities that helps youth pursue their special interests, grow and develop.

The Sheriff's Explorer Post targets those young people who have an interest in law enforcement and
